It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of our beloved Dad, Daddy, Papa. As we mourn his loss, we also celebrate the incredible life he lived and the profound impact he had on all who knew him.

Bob’s journey began at Gardner High School and continued with his studies in Engineering & Business at The University of Kansas. Throughout his career, he dedicated himself to serving with government companies, handling federal contracts with expertise and dedication. From Motorola to General Dynamics, Bell Helicopter, and retiring from Rockwell Collins Int., Bob’s professional journey was marked by integrity and excellence.

But beyond his professional achievements, Bob’s true joy came from his family and friends. He cherished every moment spent with his loved ones, whether it was playing golf, bowling, softball, or shooting pool with his son. Later in life, he found fulfillment in umpiring softball games and participating in the pool league, always embracing new adventures with enthusiasm.

Bob’s generosity knew no bounds. He had a heart of gold, always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. His kindness touched the lives of many, and he was often referred to as the kindest person one could ever meet. Some friends even adopted him as a father figure, a testament to the love and warmth he exuded.

As we bid farewell to Bob, let us remember him for the love he shared, the joy he brought, and the kindness he embodied. His legacy will live on in our hearts forever.
