Bob was fond of woodworking. He also enjoyed fishing, napping, working on cars, model car and model ship making, and more napping, or “resting his eyes”. He was a member of Holy Apostles Catholic Church and attended Fremont High School. He served in the United States Navy for 6 years. He was a very family centered man and enjoyed many visits with his siblings, in-laws, nieces, and nephews. He was a loving and adoring husband, active and gentle father, grandfather, and papa. He was always teaching his children and grandchildren many things and loved them all dearly. Not only did he love his family but his many dogs over the years. He was “Mr. Fix-it” and could do many handyman jobs. Sharon always said, “I never needed to call a handyman, Bob knew it all”. He enjoyed many vacations with his family and loved playing card games, checkers, and Yahtzee. Bob was always finding ways to make his family laugh. He was a very selfless and helpful man.
