Bob was a dear brother and always had a smile. He was a hard worker and liked by everyone that knew him. His prize possession was always the car and truck he was driving. He did farm work for many years. He lived and worked on the Melvin and Bonnie Pauls farm where he made his home and continued to live with Bonnie after Melvin's passing. He also worked construction for many years.
Bob's family would like to thank the caregivers at Hallmark Care Center and Cherry Ridge as well as Essence of Life Hospice for their wonderful care and patience.
