Bob proudly served in the U.S. Navy, where he was a Seabee.

He was a welder for 35 years at Howmet and a member of The Presbyterian Church of La Porte.   Bob was a history buff and enjoyed exploring the numerous antique stores in La Porte.   He would often be found in his basement family room where he had set up his model trains, which he loved.

Bob was an amazing husband to his wife, Carol, of almost 60 years.  He loved and valued his family more than any gift he had been given.  Bob will be forever remembered as the very best dad and Papa to his kids and grandchildren.  He and Carol loved to take trips with their children and grandchildren, with Myrtle Beach, SC being a favorite destination.  Bob never met a stranger.
