Bob devoted his life to his two daughters. Each action he took was intended to leave them with a piece of him and the love he has for them. Always by his side was his loving partner, Sandy, who displayed unconditional love and support to help him flourish.
Bob had an extensive list of accomplishments working at American Wire Group, and starting to his own business 30 years ago, which he continued to work for along side his daughters until a day before his passing. He often stated that he never worked a day in his life because he loved his job.
Apart from working Bob did enjoy a bottle of Budweiser or a glass of cognac, watching John Wayne, worldwide traveling and smoking a good dark Cigar.
Bob was a member and 32nd Degree Mason with Hermon Lodge #6 in Clarksburg. He was a friend to everyone, never met a person he couldn’t strike up a conversation with. He would also be considered a mentor to many people. He never wanted to see those less fortunate go without a meal, and would always go above and beyond to help a friend in need.
Although he had a vicious battle with a horrible disease he never let that change his positive outlook or views on life. He never stopped trying new things and he never stopped fighting. He will be greatly missed, and unconditionally loved.
