Bob was a 1977 graduate of Terre Haute South Vigo High School. He served in the United States Army.

Bob earned his Industrial Electrician Associate’s degree from Ivy Tech. In 1984, Bob was in a semi accident that left him as a quadriplegic.

I just saw the listing of Bob's funeral. I am so sorry. He was one of my patients when I worked in home health care. We went to the same high school, but it was such a large class that I did not get to know him. Bob required a lot of care, but he would help do all that he could to make it easier. He could tell us exactly what he needed. He maintained a good outlook in spite of his somewhat limited situation. I can never hear songs from the '70's again without being reminded of him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
