He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Robert was born in Detroit on October 27, 1930 to Henry and Stella Brinkman. He was a Korean War Army Veteran, where he earned a Purple Heart. Robert had a long career as a Lithographer working on many commercial printing projects on the years and was a member of the Graphic Arts International Union. He was strong in his faith as well, having been a member of St. Dorothy, St. Clement, and St. Mary, Our Lady of Families Churches over the years. Above all, he loved and cared for his family. He loved spending time with his grandkids and great-grandkids. Getting together with family at his cottage was one of his favorite things.
