The highlight of his summer was their annual 4th of July party on the farm. He enjoyed travelling and would go west with his wife on motorcycle trips travelling as far as California on the motorcycle. One time after driving the motorcycle to Seattle they rented a car and drove the Alaskan Highway. He enjoyed escaping the Illinois winters by spending time at his Florida home with Doris and loved his visits with all his family and friends. He was a great cook especially on the grill. Robert was an animal lover and avid reader; especially of John Grisham who was his favorite author. He also liked to volunteer with the Lion’s Club for many years.
