He married the love of his life, Bonnie Marshall on August 7, 1949, in Eddyville, NE. They began their life farming in the Callaway area. Four children were blessed to the marriage: Mike, Pat, Rob, and Connie. Bob filled many roles in his lifetime, he farmed, made many projects out of wood along with working alongside Bernard Kolbo in Carpentry.
