He graduated from Uintah High School in 1983. He worked as a mechanic and was employed with Gold Cross Ambulance in Salt Lake City at the time he became ill. It brought him happiness to return to Vernal and live on the families Rock Point Ranch. Robert loved the mountains and deer hunting. He was an excellent marksman. He had a lot of good times with his 4 wheeler buddies in Bountiful especially when they would all go to Moab.
