He loved being outside and learning how to drive a tractor (The Beast). Bob also enjoyed collecting baseball cards and talking sports with the guys and watching the Packers, Brewers, and Bucks. He enjoyed attending card shows and collecting memorabilia. He had a love for birds, Norman Rockwell, and golf outings in the summer. Bob loved the holidays, especially the fourth of July and Christmas. He enjoyed entertaining and cooking for family and was a boss in the kitchen. He was a classic guy; the myth, legend, the GOAT, and made others around him feel special.
