In 1969, Robert and his family migrated to the US and settled in Brooklyn, NY where they would have another child. Robert was employed at Chubb & Son insurance company in accounting and worked there for over 15 years.
Robert loved to dance, laugh, tell jokes, play cards and plant in his garden. He was our resident comedian who had a contagious smile and laughter.
