Bob was born in Lakeland, FL on October 17th , 1960. He was a long-time resident of Gainesville, Fl. He graduated from Hawthorne High school in 1979 where he then joined the United States Air-force for 6 years.

He retired as a Forman with the Sheet Metal workers Union. He also served as a volunteer mechanic for Peaceful Paths Domestic Abuse Network.
Bob’s family will remember him as a warm, good humored, giving person who could light up any room and made friends with every person he came in contact with. He was a strong man who stood up for the rights of others, especially when it came to his family. His favorite hobbies were fishing, boating, working on cars, and spending every possible moment with the people he loved. Bob was a fantastic singer, hard worker, and fixer of everything. There was never a time when he did not have a project in the works. Up until a few weeks prior to his death he was working on a new “hot rod,” which he took pride in showing off and talking about.
Bob is being cremated, per his wishes, at Milam funeral home in Gainesville. Memorial services will be planned at a later date. Although the family would enjoy seeing and loving on anyone who was part of Bob’s life, our current crisis situation and restrictive guidelines will not allow. The family will announce the Service arrangements via Social Media, at that time please feel free to join in memory and memorial of Bob, taken too soon and forever missed.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the family towards the memorial.
