Robert was a WWII veteran who proudly served in the United States Navy in the Pacific Theatre. Robert was a SeaBee in the Navy and his battalion built an airstrip on the Island of Tinian which is in the Mariana Islands. This airstrip would be where the famous plane, the Enola Gay, took off from which brought an end to WWII. After his return home, Robert became an electrician and worked for the Local 134 Electricians Union for 40 years. In his free time Robert liked to travel all around the United States, especially in his motorhome. He loved to go camping and fishing. Robert was also a very proud American and was very patriotic up until the end.
