In his earlier years, Robert was active in the Boy Scouts of America. He also worked as a soda pop fountain attendant, picked cherries in Door County and was a bartender.

Then he was assigned to Fort Lewis, Tacoma, Washington for one year where he instructed troops in winter operations, skiing and mountain climbing. He then went on to become a cold weather operations instructor at Fort Ripley, Minnesota. He continued his service in the National Guard Enlisted Association Retiree Council. He was also a member of the Wausau American Legion Post 10. Robert was acknowledged for his service and participated in an Honor Flight to our nation's capital and maintained many friendships with fellow veterans over the years. 

He was a member of St. Paul's Catholic Church in Mosinee, WI and a member of the Catholic Order of Foresters. He was also a board member of the local chapter AARP.
