Robert was born August 16, 1933 and married his lifelong love on December 31, 1955.

They lived in Calgary and later moved to Edson. Dad always said he was a Jack of all trades but a master of none. After obtaining a homestead draw they moved to and farmed in Fulham, Alberta. Dad spent many years as a Derrick man on the rigs. After retirement they moved back into Edson. He was a familiar face out walking with his cap pointing upward to the sky.
