He was an avid Florida Gator fan. He liked to spend most Saturday evenings during baseball season watching the Blue Wahoos and the fireworks that followed.

If you spent any time in Car City you will find that there probably isn’t a person that didn’t know Bob. He enjoyed working at the Tom Thumb because he was a people person.
