Robert graduated from East Grand Forks High School. He served in the Navy during WWII. Bob went on to get a BS in Mining Engineering from the University of North Dakota in 1947.
He married Colleen Mary Bushaw on February 27, 1945 at St Michael?s Catholic Church in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The couple lived in Grand Forks, until 1973 when they moved to Fargo, North Dakota.
Bob studied mining engineering in college, but it was the romance of the steam engine and the lore of the railroad that won him over. His passion for railroading remained with him long after he had retired and was second only to that of his love for his wife Colleen.
