He was known to his coworkers as Captain Robert. He started off as a deckhand and worked his way up to Superintendent. During his 40 year career, he traveled the world. He was well liked and very respected by his peers. In 1967, he married the love of his life, Diane LeBlanc, even after 55 years of marriage you could still see the love between them. Robert was a family man and after his retirement he devoted his life to his wife, children, and grandchildren.
