During his short, often sad, life, he gained international and lasting fame as the tallest man in history. Robert died tragically in 1940 at the age of only 22 but during those few years, he remained vigilant about being cast in the role of a “freak”. He only wanted acceptance and a normal life, but even when he was very young, he and his family realized that this would be nearly impossible.
