He followed these many years in the auto service business with his recent career as a real estate agent. For nearly four decades, Bob enjoyed meeting and serving the people in the Vicksburg community in addition to being a kind and loving father, husband, and friend to all.
Bob was a renowned outdoorsman, and he loved sharing this passion with his family and his large circle of friends. He is the center of many wonderful memories made in the woods or on the water that his family and friends will cherish forever. 

Bob will be deeply missed by all who knew him and his presence and character will never be forgotten.
