After college, Bob returned home to the family farm in Shenandoah where he dedicated his life’s work to farming. Bob was also a member of the First United Methodist Church in Shenandoah. 

Bob enjoyed skiing in Colorado on family ski trips growing up. He also enjoyed the outdoors and hunting with his dogs. Bob’s favorite summer hobby was growing different varieties of tomatoes in his garden. He also enjoyed a good competitive game of Scrabble. Most of his time was spent managing the family farm operation and he loved researching all the latest innovations in agriculture. Kind and altruistic, Bob was always going out of his way to help others.
