He served 2 years in Germany with the Army Airborne Division during the Korean War. Robert began his working career as a Journeyman Carpenter and later discovered an aptitude for kitchen layout and design. His large scale personality and sense of humor made him a success in the business world. Robert took his hands on carpentry experience and business acumen from his years of sales experience and management at Builder’s Wholesale to create R. Bair Enterprizes in 1973. He retired from his endeavor in the early 90’s. Robert was a longtime member and past president of the Davison Country Club. He loved the outdoors. Robert was an avid golfer and enjoyed fishing and hunting. His sometimes irracible sense of humor could get him in trouble—but he was adept at charming his way out of any situation.

Robert is survived by his wife, Joan; son, Timothy S. Bair and partner, Jeff Green of Ann Arbor; daughter, Joni (Dave) VanSumeren; grandchildren, Benjamin and Joseph VanSumeren all of Whitehall, MI.
