He attended Deptford High School and then enlisted in the United States Navy where he served during the Vietnam war. Following honorable discharge, Bob's work history included working for the Chrysler corporation, Pennsville Township, and the Office equipment maintenance field. Bob enjoyed life as a member of the VFW, Sakima Country Club and the Fraternal Order of Eagles. He enjoyed playing sports and was involved with men's basketball and baseball leagues in his earlier years in Pennsville, playing golf and hanging out at the Sakima club, playing tickets and hanging out at the PV VFW, the monthly reunions with his longtime friends and classmates, and being involved in the lives of his three daughters, their families and his brothers and sisters.
