Robert, or known to family and friends as Bob, started working for Crown Cork & Seal in Atlanta, Georgia and continued his career for over 25 years working in Spartanburg, SC and retiring as Plant Manager in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. After his early retirement from Crown Cork & Seal, he had the opportunity to drive the bus for the Fannin County School System for over 15 years. 

He was a Past Master of Sweetgum Lodge #542, as well as a Shriner. For many years, he contributed his time and talents working at the Shrine Circus as well as serving as president of the Shriners Alkuwa Unit. Just before his death, he was placed on the Wall of Fame, in the Yaarab Shrine Temple, for his contributions in helping to support the Shriners Children's hospitals. He enjoyed riding in the Shriners parade. He even made a horseless carriage that he would drive in the parades. 
 Robert loved his family and every opportunity he got to be with them.  He was a man with many talents. After retirement, he enjoyed gardening, farming, raising cattle, playing poker, and working with his hands. He loved driving through the county and was surprised to see all of the changes that have taken place since moving back to Fannin County in 1986. At the time of his death, he was a member of the New Hope Baptist Church.
