Bob lived his formative years in Addison, MI, and attended Addison High School, where he was a drum major and he played several sports. He graduated with the Class of 1965. Later that same year on August 22, 1965, he married the love of his life, Carolee Kingsley, in Manitou Beach, MI. She survives.
Bob was employed with Chrysler Corporation as a toolmaker for 35 years before his retirement in 2001. Bob was an avid sports fan, especially when the University of Michigan or the Detroit Tigers were playing. He enjoyed softball, fishing, camping, sail-boating, carpentry, auto and computer repair. He was active in his church, supported his wife and family in their endeavors, and led both a Boy Scout troop and a baton and drum corp. He loved spending time with his grandchildren, particularly swimming and bike riding.
