Robert served in the US Navy during the Korean Conflict aboard the U.S.S. Newport News, where he was a cook, and continued to enjoy baking throughout his life.  Robert was an internal auditor, and also worked as a Reserve Deputy Sherriff for Queen Anne’s County, MD.  He assisted with DWI checkpoints, and was on the interview board.  He was a member of the Kent Island United Methodist Church, and the West Annapolis Vol. Fire Co., where he served as the company’s treasurer for several years.  Following retirement, he and his wife moved to Homewood at Spring House Estates and they enjoyed being active in the community, and going to activities and events held there.  Most of all he was very proud of his devotion to his wife Beverly of over 70 years.
