Bob had many hobbies including hunting, fishing, bowling, golfing, softball, and tending his vegetable and flower gardens. Loved God and family. Loved playing Santa Claus at family Christmas parties every year. Bob rarely missed a family gathering where he was always the center of attention with story telling that always made everyone laugh. No one was a stranger to Bob. His wit and sense of humor was one of a kind. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Bob often bragged about how beautiful and smart his daughter, Tina, was; and what a great man his son, Josh, turned out to be. He loved to talk about how intelligent his grandchildren, Taylor and Cole, were and said he would be watching over them.
