Robert was born August 5, 1954 at Omaha, Nebraska to Robert J. and Doris D. (Miller) White. He was raised in Omaha and attended school in the Carter Lake area. Following his schooling, Robert remained in the Omaha area where he held several different jobs. In 2000, Robert moved to Lexington where he helped open the BBQ Smoke Pit Restaurant with his sister and brother-in-law. Shortly after moving to the area, Robert began working as a truck driver. Robert worked for Sunrise, Grand Island Express, Covenant and Justa Trucking in a career that spanned over 10 years.

Robert was a very loving and easy going person. He loved attending family gatherings and being around his relatives. Robert never had children of his own, and as a result, developed special bonds with all of his nieces, nephews, and their children.

Robert enjoyed watching movies, and going out to eat with his family. He had a glowing sense of humor that his loved ones came to appreciate over the years. Robert also had a love of animals and spending time outdoors.
