He enjoyed hunting, guns and talking to everyone and anyone he could. Robert loved going to Wal-Mart with his wife. While Cyndy shopped, he would sit at McDonalds with a sweet tea and people watch. You could always tell he had something smart to say by the crooked grin he’d look at you with. Family was very important to Bob and after his retirement he spent his time caring for his wife in their home.
