All three kids shared Bob’s love of sports and as a result he donated countless hours to various youth sports organizations.
After the railroad Bob sold insurance and ultimately retired from a long career as a steel salesman. Bob and Char loved to travel and spent many years seeing the world from land and sea. Each destination was a chance to explore and enjoy, from cruising to the tropical islands of the Caribbean and the wilds of Alaska, to touring exotic Morocco and sites of Europe. They even traveled through the Panama Canal.
Bob and Char spent their retirement years in Florida, where Bob continued his love for sports by bowling and playing horseshoes. He participated in many tournaments and won numerous awards including state championships and Player of the Year.
