Robert was the 8th of 9 children (6 boys, 3 girls) born to Len and Mid Rubner.

In the 60's, Robert, went through the usual teenage rebellion becoming involved in the hippy movement and occultism.

In 1970, he hit a low point, but then had a supernatural experience with Jesus Christ that changed his life.

Not long afterwards, he went to work as a full-time missionary to other hippies and young people like himself.

From 1971 till 1988, he travelled and lived in several major U.S. cities, Puerto Rico, Canada and Europe, smuggling Bibles and Christian literature behind the Iron Curtain for all of the 80's.

In 1988, Robert returned home where he met his wife and got married. Together they worked to establish one of Milwaukee's most popular pubs, McBobs.

As his wife, Christina, said, "Robert was the face of McBob's. We will continue to carry on his legacy." It was Robert's sense of humor, his gift for gab and genuine interest in people that won everyone to him, not to mention his amazing cooking talents.

A few years later, they were blessed with the arrival of their son, Nicholas. Being a father was something that came naturally to Robert who was as proud of his son as a father could be.

A lot of people don't know that Robert was a man of many talents. He was an artist and could draw any kind of cartoon and make up a funny story on the spot.

He was an accomplished photographer (he did his own dark-room work). He could build just about anything, fix anything, find anything (that you'd misplaced) and out of scraps and left-overs he could create a gourmet meal.

He couldn't drive a car, though. The first and last time he drove a car, he drove it straight into his neighbor's tree. No more driving after that. Good idea, Bob.

So glad you were born. You rescued me from such deep sadness. Wish you were here, but I know you're in a better place.
