Then in 1963, they moved to Miami, Florida, where they served as Children's Pastors on staff at Central Bible Church for 18 years. During that time, they also traveled around the United States and to the Bahama Islands, conducting kids crusades and camps. After returning to Missouri, they served as children’s pastors at Maitland Christian Church for several years.
Robert was a member of the Maitland Christian Church.
He enjoyed performing magic shows with his ventriloquist dummy “Skipper” for kids, woodworking, and playing the saxophone for church.
He was preceded in death by his wife; parents; and a granddaughter.
