Robert was born about 1915, exact details not found. He is the son of Hughes Carpenter and Elizabeth Clezy, who appear to have married at Kalgoorlie, Western Australia in 1904. Robert seems to have moved east after that, to either Victoria or South Australia, details again not found.
Peter Steele Clezy wrote in his family history, The Old Partnership about Robert: "He was a very likeable fellow with the firmest handshake I have ever encountered. It was wise to do a finger count after a greeting from Bob! "
Robert died in 1985 and was buried at Springvale Botanical Cemetery at Springvale, Victoria. The inscription on his grave says: "In Loving Memory of Robert Delaval Carpenter, 1915-1985, loved husband of Margaret, fond father of Philip and Tony".
