He worked as a Car Inspector on the railroad for Erie and Conrail, starting in the Port Jervis yard and moved to Hoboken, NJ.

A family statement read: “Robert will always be remembered for his appreciation of the tri-state area that he grew up in.   He loved spending time in Millrift with his friends listening to the train roaring over the bridge. He also enjoyed taking drives around Cummins Hill. More than anything, he loved his wife, Ginny.  The family takes comfort that Bob and Ginny are together again.  We know that he loved us kids and grandkids as much as we all loved him. 

A special thank you to DaVita Dialysis in Milford, PA and Orange Regional Medical Center for their wonderful care and support in his final days.”
