The couple made their home in Stickney for a couple years before moving to the home place where Robert continued his lifelong vocation of farming. He enjoyed hunting and spending time with his family. Robert went to his heavenly home Tuesday, February 25, 2020 at Avera Queen of Peace Hospital in Mitchell, SD at the age of 80.
