He and his wife, Nancy Laver Cantor raised their three daughters in East Goshen and lived in their home on Christine Lane for over fifty years before moving to Media in 2021. Rob's love and first priority was always his wife and family. Before his health deteriorated, he took great joy in sailing on the Chesapeake, skiing, and going to the shore with Nancy, their children and grandchildren. He was a voracious reader, computer whiz and avid gardener. He and Nancy were a couple for over sixty-five years and were married for almost fifty-nine years. Robert's parents, Abe and Nettie Cantor, and his in-laws, Jack and Roslyn Laver, predeceased him.
