Robert was born Aug. 8, 1951, in Jefferson, Iowa to William and Olive (Harris) Smalley.
Robert worked for Rockwell as a tool designer and drafter and Reiff Grain and Feed as a mechanic.
Some of his interests were fishing, watching old Westerns and James Bond movies. If you went to see Robert, you would probably find him in the garage working on either one of his families or friend's cars. He looked forward to spending time with his kids, grandkids and family.
Left to share his memory are his children, Judy (Brent) Heisel of Stockport, Iowa, Ryan Smalley of Milwaukee and Robyn Smalley of Germantown, Wis.; seven grandchildren, Jake (fiancee, Cassie Riegel) Heisel of Stockport, Brandon Heisel of Keosauqua, Megan Heisel of Stockport, and Dakota, Trevor, Justin and Serenity Pisano, all of Springfield, S.D.; one great-grandchild; and brother, Kenneth (Jean) Smalley of Mark, Iowa.
He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Olive; brother, William Smalley; daughter, Brenda Pisano; son, Robert Smalley Jr; and a grandchild.
