Bob was a 1966 graduate of Gaithersburg High School.

He volunteered with the 4-H Electric workshop, Small Tractor Driving Contest, Old Timers Show at the Montgomery County Fair, and Montgomery County Ag Center where he volunteered with the food committee and volunteered before and after fair each year.

Bob enjoyed spoiling the kids that his wife watched during the day. They all became part of the family since some were second generation kids including his special buddy Cameron until he moved to West Virginia. Most recently, he and Brady were buddies who ate breakfast together and went outside to watch traffic go up and down the road. They read books every morning before school over the last couple of years.
