One of Bob's first jobs was working on the Ralph Lewis Farm. He later went to work on the Doane Farm in Chazy, followed by Sheridan Iron Works in Champlain.

When he wasn't working his full time job he was remodeling his home he bought in 1957 from Sylvia's grandfather. In his spare time you could find him working on vehicles for himself, family or friends. He pulled teeth, removed slivers, bandaged cuts & scrapes and cut hair. He raised chickens, pigs, & cows.

He and Sylvia assisted in the kitchen of St. Ann's during many funeral receptions and other occasions. Bob enjoyed time with his family and friends.
