His love for the sport took him many places but mostly to Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Canada and of course his fondest place being anywhere along the Mississippi River in Iowa. He had many great stories about his adventures starting from early childhood through his entire life and was happy to share them with his many friends through the years. Some of his other talents led him to motorcycle racing when he was young and he also was an excellent pool player, participating in many pool tournaments in Iowa. Most recently he took up the art of wood working, building and very ornately painting numerous bird houses for his family and friends. Bob proudly served active duty in the US Army from 1964-1966, in the 8th Army Pathfinders Division stationed in Germany, finishing his active duty in the National Guard in 1968.
