Robert was born to Robert Bruce and Eurdean Birney Kilpatrick, in Sayre, Pennsylvania on August 20, 1948. The only son who was blessed with three sisters Barbara, Shirley, and Gloria. Robert completed high school in Pennsylvania, then went to serve our county in the Air Force. He was Honorably Discharged in the winter of 1970. He was an adventurous man seeking the best for himself and others. He married his wife, Diana Louise Caskey, and together they raised three children Daryl, Scott, and Robert. Robert’s career as a Mechanic and Truck Driver took him to various places, but he always longed to be with his family. He enjoyed being with them during the holidays, birthdays, and all the events his children were involved with growing up. His life was complete with the birth of his grandchildren and being able to see his legacy continue with the births of his great-grandchildren. His life was blessed in so many ways. He was always willing to share his relationship and the story of Jesus as his Lord and Savior.
His parents, and sister, Gloria Bennett, all precede him in death.
