Verloofde:  Faith Cahoon; na de oorlog, 6 juni 1946, trouwde ze met Robert’s broer Glaman. Ik heb Faith in de zomer van 2011 ontmoet op de boerderij van Lyn Tyndal in Illinois. Faith vertelde toen dat ze van de verlovingsringen van de broers Glaman de trouwring heeft laten maken. Zeer trots showde deze ring aan iedereen. Robert is altijd belangrijk gebleven binnen het gezin Glaman, verzekerde Faith me.
