Robert was a great father-in-law for the past 39 years. Since losing my father in 1983, he has also been my father.
I will never forget his creativity when it came to improvising. I will also remember his pride at having served on the Navy Minesweeper YMS-399, USS Kilauea and USS Herkimer during WW II and how he enjoyed talking about both his Naval and Proctor & Gamble careers.
Bob will be greatly missed by me, his family and all his friends.
My condolences to the entire Speeg family and especially my wife Cheryl, mother-in-law Gertrude, sister-in-law Carol and brother-in-law Pat.
Love, Delmar L Gran
