Bob served in the Korean War and was awarded the Purple Heart. He was always grateful for the prayer book he carried in his shirt pocket that saved his life in the war.

From coaching baseball, riding the bus to work so the older children had a car to use, vacations in northern MN and providing educational support; he worked hard and was proud of his family.
