.After moving to Ames in 1967 Robert began working for Exxon Mobil in Hennessey as a plant operator and was a dedicated employee for 40 years. Upon retirement he continued to farm and spent much of his time tending to his farm ensuring it was a haven for deer and turkey, which he loved to hunt, especially with his family. He could sit for hours and watch wildlife roam around the property. Throughout the years, his home was turned into a hunting lodge for two weeks every November. Many friends and family would spend time at his home and even drop by to retell the wildest of deer stories. Robert spent his life hunting and fishing, doing so with great passion.
Robert loved nothing more than spending time, but not too much time with his family, “tormenting” the little ones as they didn’t last too long, he had to be back to “the hill” before dark! The love he had for his brothers is something that never faded, they spoke regularly and remained a large part of each other’s lives throughout the years. He always said you could never be any closer to God than out in the woods in the peace and quiet. Robert developed friendships that lasted beyond his career working for Exxon and remained close friends with many to this day. No one enjoyed retirement more than Bob and he loved every minute of it, he would spend his mornings at the “office” and his afternoons at the “D-P Club” at the Ames Coop. He enjoyed the good-natured ribbing and the far-fetched stories that were told there. He was a great man that is loved and will be missed by many.
