Bob worked at Berry Global as a Setup\Operator for 32 years, where he retired early.

Bob enjoyed playing golf, fishing, soaking up the sun and mowing the lawn. He loved taking time coaching his son’s baseball teams as they grew up. Bob also liked to spend time watching sports, his favorite teams were the Green Bay Packers, Wisconsin Badgers, and the Chicago Cubs. One of his greatest memories was going to Wrigley Field and watching the Cubs play the Brewers with his sons. He also enjoyed time after work shooting pool with guys from work and playing poker.
