Pfc. Robert Enyeart was the second son of Bruce Stevens & Wanda Beatrice (Sims) Enyeart. After spending early childhood on a farm in Michigan, the family moved to Toledo.

Bobby was athletic, playing both basketball and football. He graduated from Libby High School in Toledo, Ohio, in 1939, and moved with his mother and brothers to Columbus, Ohio.

After Pearl Harbor, it was transferred to Muroc Army Air Field (now Edwards Air Force Base) in California in December 1941 to run anti-submarine patrols.
