Robert was born November 20, 1942 to Henry and Mary (Vogt) Imbus in Menominee, Ill.

On Aug. 21, 1965, Robert married the former Marian Sackett. To this union four children were born, Michael, Diann, Lynn and Kevin. Robert enjoyed working and making cheese at Swiss Valley Farms in Luana and was first in the United States and third in the world in cheese making. When he wasn’t busy cutting wood to heat the family home, Robert also enjoyed fishing, camping and tinkering in his garage. He loved joking around but when he said “stop” everyone knew he meant it. You could always find Robert was sitting in his chair whenever you stopped at his house with a pocket full of fruit snacks for the grandkids and great-grandkids. His greatest joy was spending time with his family.

Preceding Robert in death were his parents, Henry and Mary (Vogt) Imbus; four brothers, Herb, Jerry, Donald and Art; grandson, Justin Imbus ; great-granddaughter, Lillie Ferrel’ daughter-in-law, Jennifer Imbus and his mother-in-law and father-in-law, Ellis and Josephine Sackett.
