Bob was a gear head. He loved to build cars and trucks, often swapping out engines and drivetrains to build one of a kind vehicles. Sometimes, just looking at a car, he could tell you a unique fact, something that you didn't know. He took pride in knowing those obscure facts. Over the years he owned many Ford cars and trucks. His favorites were Ford Broncos and Ford Fairlanes - owning many. He also enjoyed collecting vintage Coca-Cola memorabilia. Bob loved all animals, he was often thought of as a "cat whisperer". He was deeply fond of his cats Scooter, Barney and Clyde. Bob had many great friends and he especially cherished his lifelong friends. He will be missed.
