Bob worked for 45 years for General Motors/Chevrolet as a marketing manager. He always went to work with a smile on his face and came home whistling. He was past president and small business counselor of SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives) and the Small Business Association. For many years he was a “grandpa volunteer” for the Junior Golf League of Oak Hills. Bob was a member of the Golden K Kiwanis Club, where his favorite volunteer project was serving at Conestoga Magnet School. Mr. B, as he was known to the students, read to kindergarteners and entertained them with magic tricks and puppets. He was also known to assist Santa with handing out candy canes and jingle bells.
