Bob was a man of great vision. He always had 20 irons in the fire and big plans
for the future. He set many challenging goals for himself and worked diligently
his whole life. His greatest business goal was to own his own ranch, which he
achieved and enjoyed for the past 20 years. Bob was a tender, loving father to his
girls, a constant source of joy and encouragement to his family, and a true pillar of
strength in his community.
Bob enjoyed hunting, fishing, going to Jackpot, dancing to Proud Mary, cattle
ranching, and wheeling and dealing at any auction.
