Bob wore many titles in the community throughout his life. After graduating from Nelsonville York High School in 1978, he went to work for his family-owned business. Upon his father's retirement in 2007, Bob and Tracey took over the business where they currently sold mobile home parts and supplies and country cabins.
Bob attended the Buchtel United Methodist Church. He had a passion for the area youth where he shared his faith and witness of Christ's love by driving the church bus at the Nelsonville Church of the Nazarene for many years. He also served on the Ward Township and Nelsonville Fire Departments along with many years of service on the Carbon Hill Water Association. Bob was also a member of the Old Timer's Baseball Association and shared his passion for baseball with his beloved father and brothers.
Bob was a remarkable individual that had a huge heart. He wore so many titles in the community but by far, his favorite was husband, father and grandfather. He is irreplaceable and will be missed by all who knew him.
