He treasured his time as a Phi Delt and all the guys.
Bob was an entrepreneur. He owned several businesses – Rose Furniture, Deck and Den, Guardian Warehouse and was a Furniture Representative for several different companies. He worked hard and never complained.
He was very generous with his time by coaching girls’ basketball, softball and sometimes volleyball.

This service was important to him plus he loved assisting Casady School!

He had a passion for cooking and was really good at it. You could not pass up his mashed potatoes.
