Loved ones remember Robert’s keen sense of humor and the delicious meals he would prepare for family at Lake Okoboji. Fine cuts of steak trembled at his grilling prowess. He was also an avid guitarist, photographer and fisherman. He filled every room he occupied with laughter and music.

Robert is survived by his children, Andrew and Megan; his mother, Elaine; and brothers, William and Steve.

Robert was preceded in death by his father, William C.; his wife, Robin Buchanan; and his son, John.
