Bob grew up on a farm in Nebraska close to the Colorado border. The family moved to Denver in 1943.
Bob served in the U.S Navy during WWII.
Bob met Doris Morell in Denver Colorado. Bob and Doris were married 26 December 1950. Their marriage produced 3 sons.
Bob became a Denver Fireman Department on 1 November 1957. He worked for the department for 27 years. Bob retired from the department in January 1985.
Bob worked a numerous firehouses over the years, but liked station 23 best if for no better reason that he could walk to and from work since he lived less than a mile from the firehouse.
Bob was handy with tools. From the time they moved into the house him and Doris raised their family in 1959 to selling it in 2007, Bob did a lot of upgrades to the house from finishing the basement to building a two-car garage.
In the mid-60s, Bob decided to turn his life over to Jesus Christ. He was devoted to Christ for the remainder of his life
He met two fellow Christian firemen named Duncan Wilke and John Barker. The 3 of them started an organization called Fellowship of Christian Firefighters International.
Doris passed away in 1992.
Bob met a new lady to take as his bride in 2006. Her name is Charlotte Peacock. Bob and Charlotte were married on June 22, 2007, in Bakersfield California. Bob moved to Bakersfield and was happy that he did not have to shovel snow for the remainder of his life. He did however have to deal with temperatures in excess of 110 degrees in the summer. He always said, it was worth the trade.
Bob is survived by his wife Charlotte, sons Art (Lynette), David (Corinne) and Dale, his grandchildren Denise, Kayci (Jonathan), Mindee, Jeremy, Cameron, Jordon and great-grandchild Silas.
