Bob would tell you he lived a great life! He was a very happy man and always loved to joke with others. He loved watching sports with his sons, especially the Vikings. He loved his family unconditionally and his family is what meant most to him. He loved watching his grandchildren grow up and would always play magic tricks and joke with them. He loved the outdoors and inspired a great love and respect for camping and nature in his family. He would always sit on the dock with his daughter and watch the sunsets. One of the best parts of camping was sitting by the campfire and having in-depth conversations which always led to laughter and joy. He will be missed beyond words by his family.

Bob is survived by his wife Pam (married 10-13-73), children; Ryan (Steph), Krystee (AJ), and Aaron (Sarah); grandchildren Kyra, Brooklyn, Brinley, Ashton, Oakley. Preceded in death by his parents, brother Leroy, and sister Doris.
