Bob was drafted into the US Army and served his country stateside from 66’-68’ during the Vietnam War.

Bob then went to work for the Ford Motor Co. with a career that spanned 30 years. Following retirement, he and Donna moved to the area in 2003 settling into their home in Williamsburg.
Bob loved going to the movies with his sons to catch a good action/sci-fi movie. He enjoyed going out to eat accompanied by a good dark beer. Sundays he would go to Howell to his parents where he would help dad and play cards with the family. As a very giving person, he was always up for helping out with whoever had a need. Bob was a skilled tennis player and relished a good garage sale and the thrill of a good find especially when he went to auctions.
