Robert was born to Edward and Millie Mae Keszler on December 26, 1939, in Damon, Texas. He was a lucky man that found true love at a young age.

While he attended First Baptist Church in Point Comfort, Texas he also served as a volunteer music leader for 25 years and then served 8 years as the music leader at Andice Baptist Church, in Andice, Texas. Robert was a man who lived to serve the Lord and he did so by serving in the communities in which he lived.
