Robert 'Bob''s Story

In his 20s, Bob worked for the Carnation Milk Co. and retired from Haynes International in 1992 after serving 27 years of service as a mill operator. Bob enjoyed puzzles, gardening and loved mowing the lawn. He was a member of Fairview Baptist Church for 25 years and was part of the church's Cowboy Band. He earned the nickname "Bouncin' Bob." Bob will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him. The family thanks Great Lakes Hospice (Erica) for caring for Bob and those at Fairview Baptist Church for their continued support.
