Robert was born March 19, 1936, the son of Harry and Pearl (Wilkenson) Fricke, of Guttenberg. After graduation he went into the Air Force. On July 17, 1956, Robert married Shirleen Friedlein, his high school sweetheart. In 1961 the couple welcomed a set of twins into their loving family. Robert and his family later settled in Northwood, where he would work as a grain elevator manager for 18 years. After retirement from the grain elevator, Robert and Shirleen evolved their love of working with upholstery into a business.

Robert loved doing anything outdoors and could be found hunting, fishing, watching birds, and spending time with family. Anything Robert said went. Robert loved his family endlessly, always bringing light into their lives.

“There are some who bring a light so great to the world, that even after they have gone … the light remains.” – Unknown
