He loved building bonfires that could be seen from the window of the Space Station, walks, hiking up Little Si, Rattlesnake Ridge, and enjoyed hiking with his children to many of the Alpine Wilderness lakes. Bob is survived by his current wife Patty, his first wife Shelia, five children, Ken, Sean, Tim, Colleen, and Kelly, 13 grandchildren, and 10 great grandchildren. There will be a celebration of life, date and location to be determined.
