They farmed in Greenwood until 1988. After farming, Robert started Bullish Wear, a company focused on custom screen printing. He enjoyed working with his customers as well as giving tours to grade school children. Robert sold Bullish Wear and retired in 2006. He was very active in the community, serving on the Greenwood School Board and the Clark County Board of Supervisors, and was also a member of the Lions Club.
