Most of Robert’s career was spent with U.S. Motors. His job took him and his family to Mena, Arkansas. He retired from U.S. Motors and remained in Mena. In retirement Robert enjoyed drinking morning coffee with Jan on their screened-in front porch. He became a wonderful cook. He was best known for his fish fries, red sauce with meatballs, and brisket. If you ask his grandson Cook it was his chili cheese hot dogs and Georgia would tell you it was his ice cream sundaes. Robert was a great outdoorsman. By far his biggest passion was fishing. He would fish everyday if he could and he passed the love of fishing on to his grandson Lane Daniel.
