Bob graduated from Columbus’ South High School in 1944 and went on to serve in the US Navy during WWII, graduating from The Ohio State University in 1952 with a degree in biology. After working for 11 years for the State of Kentucky Wildlife Division, moved to Westerville, OH in 1963 and worked for the State of Ohio Wildlife Division for 30 years. Bob was also a member of the Amigo Club. Always an avid hunter and fisherman, Bob took up snow skiing and golfing in his retirement, continuing both into his 80’s. The family would like to thank all of Bob’s golfing buddies and Dunkin Donut friends from The Villages for all the times they stopped by to pick Bob up, or just to say hi in the past few months. These visits brought much joy to Bob. And a special thanks to family friends Patty and Dick Hissong for being there for Bob & Jane during this difficult time.
