Bob graduated from Cuyahoga Falls High School in 1945, and was a U.S. Army veteran of World War II. He was employed for 41 years at B.F. Goodrich, and also enjoyed being a school bus driver for the City of Stow for many years. He was a former member of Cuyahoga Falls Baptist Church and, most recently, a member of Cornerstone Community Church where he faithfully served the Lord by cleaning the church, mowing the lawn, and ushering on Sunday mornings. Bob was very active his entire life. He enjoyed hiking, biking, bowling, cross country skiing, and gardening. He spent endless hours supporting his children and grandchildren at their sports, church, and school events. He will be greatly missed by his entire family, but will live in our hearts forever.
