Robert was born on April 29, 1951, in St. Louis, MO to Edward William and Nellie Pauline (Reese) Brinkmann. Robert joined the United States Army on October 30, 1970, and was stationed at Ft. Hood, TX where he met and married Rita Miller on May 15, 1976. After being discharged from the Army, Robert drove a truck in the oil fields and over the road before  becoming a house parent at Cal Farley Boys Ranch. His greatest career accomplishment was  earning his professional level certification for house parents. Robert loved to fish, hunt, golf,  and to go on trips and cruises. However, his greatest joy was spending time with his family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; siblings: Margaret Brinkmann Hale, George Edward Brinkmann, William Lloyd Brinkmann.

Robert is survived by his loving wife, Rita, of the home; children: Rebecca Boland, Diana Wyatt and husband Thomas, Rachal Fryman, Robert Albert Brinkmann, Jr. and wife Denia and Edward William Brinkmann; grandchildren: Ashley Brinkmann Sullins, Justine Wyatt, Tessa Wyatt, William Wyatt, Shaynna Oseguera, Kayla Fryman, Dominec Hill, Devon Fryman, Ty Boland, Seth Boland, Brianna Brinkmann, Breyden Brinkmann, Bristol Brinkmann, Landree Brinkmann, Amelia Brinkmann; and 23 Great-grandchildren.
