Robert’s parents came to Indiana from Butler, Pennsylvania. Robert quit school after the fourth grade. He also lost an eye while chopping wood, but after marrying and having a family, he earned a degree in Civil Engineering.

Local citizens razzed him about leaving home at age 62 to build houses in Barrington, Illinois. He not only won contracts to build them, but his houses were featured in the Roto Gravure section of the Chicago Tribune.

After the banks failed in 1933, he made his home in Cincinnati, Ohio, with his daughter Margaret.
