In 1993, Robert was offered a position as an Industrial Engineer with Raytheon Missiles in Tucson, Arizona. He accepted the offer and the family moved to their permanent home in Oro Valley, Arizona. He loved to spend time with his family, take family vacations, read, hike and garden. He also enjoyed coaching his kids sport teams. He never missed a baseball, basketball or soccer game. He always put his family first and was a great provider. He adored his wife, Brenda and his three children and grandchildren.
Robert has three granddaughters: Dannica Rae and Eden Paige of Wesley and Lena Bagarozzi, Charlie Marie of Vanessa and Justin Wray. He also has a grandson of Vanessa and Justin Wray that is expected to arrive August 31, 2015.
Rather than mourn the death of Robert, he wanted his family and friends to celebrate his life. He requested a party after his service where people could enjoy one another's company, fill the room with laughter, and remember all of the happy times he shared with those he loved. The reception will follow after the Celebration of Life Service.
