He loved his humongous family, being on a boat, traveling by RV, gardening in his backyard, and watching football. Bob lived his life with a youthful disposition and was free-spirited. He never met a stranger and worked to take care of other people’s needs whether they were family, friends, or strangers. Bob gave away more than he made, and he never passed up an opportunity to make someone laugh, smile, or scratch off a lottery ticket. Bob is celebrating going home to the loved ones that preceded him and leaving behind numerous family members and friends who loved him.
