On July 8, 1942, Bob was united in marriage to Frances Mabel Jones in Lancaster, Missouri. He proudly served his country in Long Beach, CA, France and Italy during WWII in the United States Air Force from July 15, 1942 – January 7, 1946. After returning to civilian life, Bob worked for Rundel Oil Company delivering fuel oil, then for Waterloo Motor Supply, Fogdall RV delivering travel trailers, and for area car dealers delivering vehicles. He loved red miniature dachshunds having owned several during his lifetime. Bob enjoyed classic cars, used to drive stock cars and going salmon fishing up North. In his younger years, he enjoyed camping and going to national hot air balloon rallies and festivals. Most of all, Bob will be remembered as a warm, kind and generous man who loved his family and friends dearly.
