Robert loved playing on the Frankford High School football team in Philadelphia, PA. He enjoyed equestrian weekends with Robin and Jessie, loved his Penn State weekends and trips to New York. Robert was honorably discharged from the Army Reserve National Guard of Pennsylvania after 6 years on service. Was an avid camper but poor fisherman. Enjoyed grandchildren weekends at camp playing games, campfires and fishing (hehe). Loved his Philadelphia Phillies and rooted for the Eagles. You always found him wearing his Eagles hat and watching them. Worked at Air Shields in Hatboro, PA for 23 years. Disliked the cold and moved to Myrtle Beach where he loved cruising the resort. Enjoyed sitting on Susie’s porch waving at the campers coming and going and talking to John about the Frankford High Pioneer games. Always had a smile and enjoyed all the interactions with extended family and friends.
