Mr. Robert was a charter member of the Junior Pioneers and was its oldest past president. He was a St. Paul notary public for over 68 years.

Surviving are one daughter, Mrs. Leo Hansen, Minneapolis; four sons, A. R. Robert, Minneapolis, A. W. Robert, Whitehall, Mont., Paul J. Robert, Joliet, Ill., and Frank I. Robert, St. Paul; 13 grand children and 14 great-grandchildren.
