Robert was born on May 15th, 1921 at West Bend, Iowa, the son of Perrie and Ellen (Satter) DeGroote. He grew up in Corwith and graduated from Corwith High School in 1939. After completing two years at Iowa State University Robert then spent three years in the service. From 1943 to 1946 he served in the Philippines and New Guinea.

Robert was also an active member of St. Mary's Catholic Church, where at different times he served as the Church Director, lector, and on the Church Council. Robert had a variety of interests and he enjoyed reading in his later years. The library was one of his favorite places to go while living at Huskamp Haven in Algona.

His unconditional love for his family, his optimism, his ready smile, and strong faith are only a few of the attributes that made him the 'best Dad ever' to his children. His family was the true joy of his life and he loved telling anyone that visited him that he had 19 grandchildren and 27 great grandchildren. The way he gave of his life to his family will be always be remembered by his children and grandchildren.
