There were many things Bob loved in life, but family and friends topped the list. He always had time for family and friends. And Peanut
He loved working and often worked seven days a week. He worked for Main Care for 19 years and drove cement truck for Wadler’s before that. One of the most difficult results of his illness was when he could no longer work.
He took pride in caring for the Halcottsville Cemetery. On most Saturdays and Sundays, Bob could be found at the cemetery, mowing and trimming, and straightening and cleaning the ancient headstones.
He was a member of the Margaretville Fire Department for 15 years. One of his jobs was keeping the fire trucks maintained and polished.
Bob made friends easily. He was outgoing, kind, and warm, and maintained his sense of humor even when very ill. He loved to fish and, no matter the weather, on April 1st, he went fishing. He also enjoyed golf and often participated in tournaments to support the Arkville Fire Department.
