On June 1, 1968, Bob was united in marriage to Carol Sue Brown, known to all as Sue, and they were blessed to have forty-eight years together.

Bob was a Christian, believing in the Lord as his Savior and had been attending Mercy Ministries, formerly Calvary Church, in St. Clair, MO. Bob had worked at St. Clair Die Casting in St. Clair, MO, for over forty years and in the later years, was working as a foreman. He was an outdoorsman at heart and his greatest passion was going coon hunting. He was a member of the Crawford County Coon Hunters and had made many friends that also enjoyed the sport. He raised and trained his coonhounds and even had a mule to hunt on. He also enjoyed riding horses and throughout his younger years, he had enjoyed riding motorcycles. He had various models of bikes and he and Sue enjoyed riding. For a while, he had enjoyed his antique car. Bob was happiest he was with Sue and his family and many wonderful memories have been created.
