On September 25, 1946, Robert married Alice Lee Jensen in Basalt. He was a farmer and a rancher. His biggest dream was to own his own farm and have a family. He was successful at both. He passed the farm onto his daughter, Sharon and husband, Joe, keeping the farm in the family. Robert was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
