Bob enjoyed farming and took great pride in his machinery and farming practices. He loved to collect, so he would always have whatever was needed! If you had a question for Bob, he’d have an answer for you! Bob had a gift for remembering details, and could share details for any given event or date. He enjoyed the outdoors, and had hunted in his earlier years. Bob loved watching his family participate in demo derbies and dirt track racing. He will be missed by his family and friends.
