After serving in the Navy, Bob returned home and married his wife, Jean Secord on July 27, 1954. They made their home in Westbrook and Bob was employed at the Carter Rice Paper Company. A hard-working man, Bob typically held multiple jobs at once. He even built a home from the ground up and "flipped" many houses in Westbrook over the years.

In his free time, Bob enjoyed attending and supporting all the local sporting events in Westbrook, especially his grandchildren's events. Bob was a talented woodworker and crafted many pieces for his family members. Above all, Bob was a family man and will be remembered for his calm and gentle nature.
