Robert Kiss

Robert Kiss emigrated to the United States from Hungary in 1956 with his parents who wanted better opportunities for their children. He settled into a comfortable life in Ohio with a family of his own and a career as an exterminator. With long hours, hard physical work, and old age, both the job and home maintenance became too difficult. Through his veteran’s support network, Robert found a home at Kirby Manor in Cleveland, OH where his fixed income is enough for rent, utilities, and medical expenses.
