Bob was a very devoted and loving husband to Joan, to whom he married on February 16, 1963, celebrating 54 years together, and a great Father and Grandfather. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and trips to the mountains. God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So He put his arms around you, and whispered, "Come to me." A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands now rest. He broke our hearts to prove to us, He only TAKES THE BEST. We will miss you dearly, until we meet again.
