Robert was an avid gun collector and loved visiting the shooting range to show off his newest gun when he was able. He was also a lifetime NRA member and a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment. Robert made invaluable friendships over several years from spending time on the Virginia Fone Net as a HAM (KK4EXP) and enjoyed leading the net meetings every Wednesday evening. He also spent time watching hockey games and enjoyed it, since it was his favorite sport. He was a huge New York Rangers fan and also at a time played hockey himself when he was younger. Robert had an extensive career with various jobs but spent the majority traveling for work as a Sales Engineer meeting customers in various states within the US. He then retired at the age of 65. He also loved attending family gatherings and spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He will forever be loved and missed.
