Bob was born in a time where things were simpler and his steadfast personality and physical strength were a reflection of the foundational beliefs that he held dear, family and hard work.

He set the bar high for all who knew him to see how to care for family, people and the land that he felt had been trusted to him by the Lord. Bob's devotion to his family and his farm will be the priceless and enduring heritage that his family will carry forward into future generations.
