Robert was a doctor of medicine and received his degree from Loma Linda University. He worked as a Family Doctor in Adirondack Park, NY and as an ER Doctor in Eastern and Western North Carolina. Robert proudly served our country in the US Army during the Korean War. “Dr. Bob” traveled the world and was always planning for another adventure. He loved books, old hymns, researching and exploring ideas, going for walks, and working on his website. In addition to being a physician, he was a writer, artist, musician, and videographer. He loved kids, dogs, and strawberry ice-cream. He provided many opportunities for his family to travel with him, and always showed up for family events.
