He retired from Merck/Schering Plough, Inc., after 42 years of service. He was active in sports and loved the Tigers and Grizzlies. He coached his sons in baseball, basketball, and soccer as well as the girls' softball team for Plough. He also played baseball for Schering Plough as well as softball. Later in life he was the "official scorekeeper" known as "Pops" and assistant coach for Triangle and Public Enemy men's softball teams. Robert was able to touch everyone's life he met. If you were lucky enough to have met him, then you knew you had a friend forever. He loved his family most in life.
