He met the love of his life, Janet Schwaderer in 1949. On August 22, 1952 they were united in marriage in Loup City NE. They did a lot of traveling and moved around with Robert's job all around the country finally settling in Farmington in 1959.

Bob and Janet did everything together. They traveled several places with their motorhome. They were also in a club that kept them busy known as miners and prospectors. He also enjoyed tinkering with things and making good use of everyday he was on earth. Both enjoyed playing cards with friends and also visiting the casinos. All his neighborhood friends will miss seeing their ol' friend Bob riding his vintage tractor, the envy of the neighborhood, but most of all will miss his friendship.
