Bob worked for the Lorain Telephone Company (now Sprint) and retired as a supervisor after 35 years. During this time, he attended Lorain County Community College as well as several other telephone schools in New York, Dallas, and Chicago.
Bob’s passion for radio and television led him to graduate from the National Radio and Television School in Cleveland, OH. He attended voiceover workshops in Cleveland and enjoyed participating in freelance modeling, which included an appearance on a billboard with Mrs. Ohio.
Bob had several hobbies including bear and duck hunting, fishing, golfing, watching major league baseball (especially the Cleveland Indians!), flying a Cessna 150, gardening, collecting Popeye memorabilia, reading, writing short stories, and investing. Bob loved to travel and visited all 50 states, Canada, Mexico, Germany, France and Austria, and enjoyed taking cruises on the Caribbean Sea. One of his favorite golfing adventures was playing with Bob Feller, the famous pitcher from the Cleveland Indians. Bob was also a prolific artist and enjoyed painting Western scenes as well as comical scenes from life.
Bob was a 32nd degree Mason and was active for many years collecting many distinguished titles along the way. He was also a long-time member and supporter of Ducks Unlimited.
In 1997, Bob and his wife Linda moved to Lexington, TN, to assist Linda’s parents when their health declined. They eventually joined First Baptist Church where Bob served as president of the Jack Hay Sunday School Class.
Bob was a devoted husband, a supportive stepdad, and a great “Pop” to his grandkids. He was a master storyteller of true events and comical adventures, which his family asked him to tell repeatedly.
