Robert was born on September 16, 1939 and raised in the Glasford community in Southern Alberta. He farmed and ranched his whole life until his declining health forced him to move to Medicine Hat for care in 2017. Robert was very involved in his community, his church and overseas missions. Robert’s many interests ranged from aviation to photography to enjoying the outdoors, whether gardening, waterskiing or hiking a trail. Robert’s deep faith sustained him especially in his last days.
