When Bob saw Kathy checking into the high school he attended he knew at that moment she was the one he wanted to marry. He and Kathy raised three children and through love and patience, taught them to be gentlemen and a lady. Bob’s family and friends knew him as one of the kindest, most gentle people they had ever known. He retired from Armco Steel/National Supply Co. in 1983. He was a dedicated family man and husband who had a great sense of humor. He enjoyed fishing, boating, camping and taking the family water skiing.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, a charity to which Bob and Kathy donated.
There is no formal service planned.
