He was preceded in death by his parents, sister, Joyce, and his wonderful wife, Bobbie of 32 years. Bob completed his high school education in the United States Air Force (USAF). While pursuing his Air Force career, he was subsequently relocated to Davis Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona in 1965.
