Bob enjoyed hunting and fishing along with his wife Brenda.  They had also become avid gardeners.  Bob, being the constant joker, started a vegetable growing contest with his mother-in-law.  His kids recently had to decide upon the largest onion winner.  This year’s title went to Diane.   Bob was a generous soul who enjoyed giving.  Many who knew him knew about his fondness of picking potatoes and giving them away to others.   Bob was known to always have a project going and was always willing to lend a hand to family and friends.  Bob and Brenda enjoyed riding their motorcycles and traveling many miles together.  They were looking forward to traveling the country together.
