He loved to fish, boat and hunt. He also enjoyed music and spending time with family and friends. He attended Brazil High School and joined the U.S. Army. He served the United States Army for four years where he was a medic in the Vietnam war. Through the years he worked various jobs including Cook’s Sawmill in Reelsville, Indiana and Bemis Company in Terre Haute, Indiana. Bob was an avid Colts football fan, and also loved the Chicago Bears. He was a member and supporter of the VFW.
