Robert was known as a kind, thoughtful and caring person. He loved his family and spending time with them. Robert enjoyed volunteering his time at St. David’s Episcopal Church, traveling abroad, often to Europe or Costa Rica and just being social, going out to dinner or partaking in the Orpheus Club in Philadelphia. He enjoyed visiting different libraries and finding something good to read. He also loved music, especially listening to Dixieland jazz.
