Robert was born in St Paul, Minnesota, served in the Army during WW II, graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor's degree in Business and worked as an Insurance Agent in South Lake Tahoe, California, for over 30 years.

Bob loved his friends, golf, humor, and most of all, his family. He is survived by his adoring daughter, Lisa North and her husband Mark North, grandsons, Michael Fesler North and Zack Robert North and granddaughter, Hannah North, and his sister, Shirley Burns.
