He served as Chief of Staff of Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center before his retirement. Following Robert's retirement, he and his wife moved full-time to their second home on Tink Wig Lake outside Hawley. During that time, Robert worked as a starter for Woodloch Springs Golf Course. Robert enjoyed cheering on University of Michigan football, flying airplanes and conversations with friends over coffee and breakfast. Most important to Robert was being with his family and friends.
