Robert was born in Dell Rapids, SD, on May 18, 1943, to Joseph and Audrey (Schwartz) Zeig. After his schooling, Robert owned and operated “Zeig Brothers Gas Station” for many years.

Throughout the years, they loved to play cards together and garden.

An avid outdoorsman, Robert had a deep appreciation for nature and enjoyed hunting and fishing with his sons, teaching them everything he knew. He loved playing cards, especially pinochle, and was notorious for winning every bid.
