In his free time, Bob enjoyed socializing with friends and fishing. After retiring he traveled with Genese and wintered in Florida, spending their days fishing and their evenings among friends. Bob is survived by his two children, Corey (Diane) Helm and Loree Eastlick; eight grandchildren; and five great grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Hilda; wife, Genese; and sister, Jean Spillane.
