Bob loved taking his boys to pull his Super M at local tractor pulls, watching NASCAR, NFL football and of course spending time with friends and family in the shed. Bob was known by many as someone you could count on for lending a helping hand in and around the shop, willingness to teach, helping people in the community and always shared a good laugh while doing it. Most importantly, you can’t forget those quick witted one liners and skills on the dance floor.
