He met Norma Collazo in 1969 and they were married in 1970. Together they raised three wonderful children. Sean, Alison and William. Robert and Norma were always devoted to one another and never apart during their 50 years of marriage.

His pride and joy were his two grandchildren Brianne and Hudson Robert, who he cherished and spent many happy playful times with. He adored them. And he was very proud of his daughter in-laws Maureen and Brittany.

Robert loved his family, loved Brooklyn and living in Marine Park and was a proud American.
