Robert honorably served his country in the Navy aboard the USS Worden DLG-18 as a Hull Technician, 3rd Class, in the Vietnam War. Bob had the distinction of being a life member of the St. Charles VFW Post #5036.
Bob went on to work for the Community Fire Protection District for fifteen years, eventually working his way up to Battalion Chief. Following his firefighting career, Bob was a building inspector for St. Charles County. He retired from his position as Chief Code Official for Town and Country in 2011 after a very successful career. Bob served as President of the Missouri Association of Building Officials and Inspectors (MABOI) in 2004 where there now is a scholarship in his name. In his spare time, Bob enjoyed playing a round of golf, spending time with his grandchildren and making memories with his family. He will be dearly missed.
