Dating back to 1995, he was an active member of the Loyal Order of the Moose, Downers Grove Lodge #1535 . "Locks of Love" was an organization close to Robert 's heart. He would grow his hair long, have it cut, and donate it to "Locks of Love." Robert was employed by the United States Lisle Post Office, and as a chef at Paw Paw Manor. While cooking at the Manor, he would chat with the residents and provide them with tasty meals and great conversation. To know Robert was to know his love, smile, laugh, hugs, huge heart, selfless giving, and phenomenal cooking skills! His family and friends considered him, their personal "Pastry Chef." Robert 's famous Polish Kolachkie, desserts of all kinds, and "Grandma 's Bread" were just a few of everyone 's favorites. As the "Grill Master," no matter the weather, Robert would be found standing over the barbeque creating the perfect burger, steak, or rack of ribs. Robert loved people and enjoyed spending time with family and friends. He was a Cub Fan and true outdoorsman who enjoyed camping and fishing, in Illinois or Wisconsin. Robert cared for many people during his lifetime. He was always ready to lend a hand and would give you the shirt off of his back. Most extraordinary, was the assistance he gave to his mother and father during their "Golden Years." His genuine love and care for them was remarkable. Known as "Uncle Robert," he had many others who admired and loved him as well. Robert was one of the best friends a person could have and will be terribly missed. A memorial service for Robert will be held on Saturday, April 5, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. at Plano Christian Church, 9 Schomer Lane, Plano, Il 60545.
