Robert was born on August 3, 1936 in Southington to the late Joseph and Lucille (Kania) Renkar and had been a lifelong Southington resident.

Bob proudly served his country in the U.S. Army in Karlshrue, Germany. During his service he became a boxer. Upon his return home, Bob worked at Southington Form Construction for 11 years and retired from Fafnir Bearing after 37 years of service.
