Robert was employed at Indianapolis Public Schools for over thirty-three years as an educator in English and High School History before retiring in 2000. Robert was a skilled musician, and had great passion for music of all types, especially rock, bluegrass, classical, and flamingo. He could often be found playing his guitar, banjo, flamingo guitar or singing to the music. He cherished his role as a father and grandfather.
