Father of Ted Whitaker
Rob is the owner of Whitaker Ranch, just south of Medora. He inherited it from his father in 1985, and intends to pass it on to his own son, Ted, eventually. Though the ranch is approximately a mile south of town, Rob lives in Medora for the most part, leaving many of the smaller duties to ranch hands that he’s been able to hire since taking over. Whitaker Ranch has been very successful under Robert’s ownership, and it is a great source of pride for him. During the few times he’s not engaged in ranch work, Rob likes to spend time hiking in Theodore Roosevelt National Park as well as taking occasional hunting trips with his son.
