Robert Lee Slezak was born to Donald and Leona Slezak on July 9, 1936. He grew up on East Douglas Avenue in Des Moines. Robert passed away on May 21, 2020, at the Rowley Masonic Home in Perry of complications of COVID-19. Robert had enjoyed living at Rowley for the last 18 years of his life. While there he enjoyed helping fold the laundry and also assisting the activities director.

Robert always looked forward to the Iowa State Fair and loved parties. His favorite foods were pie and pancakes.
