Meet Robert. Here’s a picture of him and me on July 3, 2015.
Robert was 95 years old and going strong. He lived by himself in an upstairs condo and still drove himself around. Do you see the sandwiches on the counter in the background? He was preparing his lunches for the week.
Robert E. Parmer Jr. was born on September 13, 1919 to Robert E. Parmer and Esther Suter. He is the grandson of Samuel E. Parmer and the great-grandson of Samuel M. Parmer.
On my initial visit to Lancaster, PA, Robert was on my list of people to hopefully visit. I had cold-called him on the telephone before visiting Lancaster, but he had a hard time hearing and understanding what I was saying over the telephone. So on my last day in Lancaster, I told Ronald that I’d like to visit Robert. I’m so glad we did!
