He was a member of Sherwood Oaks Christian church. Bob worked at Ralph Rogers Construction Company for 39 years retiring in 1984. He was a supervisor working with many people in Bloomington building most of the old housing additions. He worked very closely with Howard and Rodney Young.
I.U. Football was one of his great passions, for 25 years. He had worked with the construction of the stadium at the time and they allowed him to pick his own seat in the stands before they were even numbered. Golfing was another love...and he was able to play until about 93 years of age. If you knew him, he always made you laugh and would always come up with something.
