Bob was a veteran of the US Army. He was known and loved by many as he provided lunch to twin cities companies in his Auggies truck for nearly 40 years. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and took many adventurous motorcycle trips with his riding buddies and lifelong friends. Scrabble was his favorite game and the only thing he would sit still for as he preferred to be on the move and active. He always had a smile to share and would do anything to help others in need. He was a loving father and caring friend who will be missed dearly.
