Bob enjoyed camping, fishing, cooking meals for his family and having his own spin on recipes, working on cars, and endless other projects. Bob was passionate about music and was the Elvis and Roy Orbison of his time and performed with several professionals and bands. One of Bob’s extensive accomplishments was celebrating 45 years of sobriety this past Memorial Day. He will be remembered for his big fun-loving heart, being a caretaker of others, leaving a legacy, “there is no such thing as can’t”, living life to the fullest, enjoying his work, and most of all loving his family endlessly whom he was very proud of.
