Henry worked at the family farm. He finished school with an 11th grade education.

In 1928, he headed for California with a friend with $75 in hand. He traveled through the Berthound Pass and forded the Colorado River on a barge, ultimately ending in Los Angeles.

During World War II, Bob built B-17 and P-38 fighter aircraft for Lockheed Martin. In 1950, he moved to Yucaipa with his wife Irene and was employed as a mechanic and a service manager at the DeSoto/Plymouth car dealership in Redlands.
