Bob was a 4th degree member of the Knights of Columbus, a member of the Oconomowoc Legion Post 91 and he proudly served his country in the Air Force. He worked in the construction industry for over 40 years. He enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren, and he took pride in watching his son and grandsons play baseball and was a big fan of the Five O’s and the Brewers. He loved fishing, cooking, gardening, sports and volunteering in his free time to help others. No was not in his vocabulary. Bob was a man of deep faith who loved his church, family and friends and he will truly be missed by all that knew him.
