Bob was born on April 6, 1950 in Chicago, Illinois. The family relocated to his father’s hometown of Marion in the late fifties. He graduated from Marion High School in 1968. He married his first wife, Donna Gordon, in 1970. Bob began working for GMAC in Carbondale, Illinois and was later transferred to St. Louis, Missouri. He moved to Texas after he accepted a job with Household Finance. Bob was blessed with the ability to make people laugh. He was a bit of a prankster and had a joke for every occasion. His playful, loving nature put everyone around him at ease. Children recognized him as a kindred spirit who was never too tired to play.
