After retiring from Brightstar, Bob and his wife relocated to Delavan, WI. Bob had a unique sense of humor and loved being outdoors. He enjoyed boating, hiking, listening to music, exploring and squirrel watching. Most of all, Bob enjoyed spending his time with family and friends relaxing by a bonfire, sharing laughs, stories, and making memories. Anyone who was blessed to know him would tell you his family was his world. He was never shy about letting everyone know just how proud he was through his many stories shared with anyone who would listen!
