He spent his working years employed as an airport handler by both Allentown and Philadelphia Airports for many years before his retirement. Robert enjoyed playing baseball as a kid, growing up to be an avid Philadelphia Phillies fan. He was a lifelong Philadelphia Eagles fan, never missing a chance to watch a game.
