Robert married Mary Osborne on August 28, 1982 in Hallstead, PA and lived in New York for several years before moving to Spring Grove. Most recently Robert worked at the Spring Grove Public Library. Robert loved reading, helping people, and considered this the job of a lifetime. It was the highlight of his week when the children of Spring Grove visited the library.

Also survived by siblings David (Judy) Patton, Ruth Brett, William (Lynnelle) Rodenz, Catherine (Paul) Hagen, Marilyn (Lee Roy) Parks, Anna (Dennis) Miller, and Lucy (Jim) Crawford, and many nieces and nephews.

Robert was preceeded in death by his wife Mary, father Earl, brother Peter, nephew Tobias Parks, nephew Daniel Patton, and brother-in-law Dave Brett.

A memorial service will be held on January 20 at 1:00 pm at Calvary Evangelical Free Church in Spring Grove. There will be no graveside service. Per Robert's request, donations can be made to Spring Grove Public Library or any local daycare or preschool programs in Spring Grove.
