Robert grew up in Fulton, Missouri and was a graduate of Fulton High School, where he excelled in baseball and football. He received his undergraduate degree from Westminster College where he was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. While attending Westminster, he found his passion working at the Missouri School for the Deaf, where he became the second generation to work in Deaf education. He and Jeaneal each earned a master’s degree in Special Education with an emphasis in Deaf education from the University of Arizona, Tucson. Bob later earned a second master’s degree in Administration and Leadership from California State University, Northridge. After graduate school, he held numerous positions at Louisiana, Mississippi and Missouri Schools for the Deaf, including Deaf Educator, Dean of Students, Coach, Principal, and finally retiring as Interim Superintendent at MSD in 2003.

Robert was a member of the First Christian Church in Fulton where he served as a Deacon for many years. He also enjoyed serving as President of the Fulton Rotary club.

In his spare time, Robert enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, traveling, researching genealogy, and spending time with his friends and family.
