He then worked for Goodwill of Northern, IL for the last 25 years; currently as a business manager and also as a mentor for Goodwill Future Leaders which meant a lot to him; connecting with the young people he served. He had a strong faith in God and was an involved member of Faith Center Church. Robert was an avid golfer, fan of Tiger Woods, and was Club Champ at Silver Ridge Golf Course twice. He loved baseball and was a die hard Cubs fan even getting to experience a World Series game with his son which he cherished. He also played semi professional baseball when he was younger. He was a life long Iowa Hawkeye fan. He loved to read and enjoyed history, war stories, and was incredibly patriotic. He will be remembered as a people person who was always willing and wanting to help others in their time of need. But, more than anything he was a family man.
