When the Communist Party took over China, Robert returned to Taiwan to continue his education in July of 1947. He attended the National Taiwan Normal University and graduated with a degree in Education, after which he taught English in high schools in Taiwan for over a decade.
On January 2, 1954, Robert married Dr. Young-Fu Wu’s eldest daughter, Fu-Mei Wu. The couple gave birth to three daughters: Judy, who died in 1987; Jenny, who married Timothy Chuang and had six children, Jonathan, Michael, Andrew, Elisa, Danielle, and Maxine; and Grace, who married Jonathan Kuo and had two children, Stephanie and Bryan. Altogether Robert and Fu-Mei had eight grandchildren, four boys and four girls, and recently celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary.

Three years later, he moved to Taipei and to work as the general manager for the Taiwan Plastic Company. In 1970, he came to America to seek medical help for his daughter Judy who had been diagnosed with Lupus. He began working in New York as a traffic manager for Ajinomoto USA, where he would work for 25 more years until he retired. In 1972, the rest of the family moved to New York to live with him.
Robert joined the congregation of Taiwan Union Christian Church in 1971 and began serving as a church leader. Among his responsibilities was orchestrating the official government registration of Taiwan Union Christian Church. In 1987, he was installed as an elder in the church. He continued to serve as an elder for more than 20 years. He was a dedicated servant of God for his whole life.
In his lifetime, Elder Huang loved music, art, literature, photography, and gardening. He was gifted in management and organization. He had a flexible attitude and lived a simple and quiet life. Whether at work, home, or church, or in social situations, he always wholeheartedly gave all his love and care. Early on the morning of January 4, 2013, God called him home in his sleep at age 85. He is survived by his wife and two daughters, Jenny and Grace. He leaves with us a legacy of a wonderful life filled with happiness and love.
