He was a graduate of El Camino High School in Sacramento and Cal Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo with a bachelor’s in animal husbandry, Class of 1962. He served in the U.S. Army from 1962 to 1964. He managed meat processing companies, which included Safeway in Los Angeles, Bar-S Foods in Seattle, and Foster Farms Turkey plant in Turlock.

Robert is survived by his sister Elisabeth Padula of Sacramento, his wife Marilynn of Turlock, his son and daughter, seven grandchildren, and one great-granddaughter Emily.
