Bob worked at Horner Flooring for 41 years before retiring. Bob had many hobbies and most people knew him as the “Garbage guy.” Not only did he pick up garbage for neighbors and friends on Saturdays, but he would check on them too. He would help anyone with anything. He would plow for you, cut your grass, weld anything you needed, fix your vehicle, get you out of a ditch, pull your dock out of the water and even put it in. He enjoyed scuba diving in the summers, scratch off lottery tickets, Pepsi and had a black belt in Judo. He loved all animals, especially his 13 year old Chihuahua, Suzie.
A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2023 at the Range Lounge in South Range from 1 until 3 P.M. Please join the family and share your favorite memories of Bob.
