After his retirement, Robert went to work in 2000 for Giant Food in Edgewater where he worked for 14 years. Robert had a passion for working on cars, and enjoyed crossword puzzles, neighborhood watch and car counting from his patio, traveling and, most of all, spending time with his family, particularly at his kids’ and grandkids’ events.
