Bob grew up in the Cairo area attending grade school at Districts 70 -79 in Howard County and Cairo High School. His fathers ill health made it necessary for Bob to leave school in his freshman year, to help on the family farm.

Bob enjoyed hunting, farming and feeding cattle. Bob enjoyed baseball, and played for the Sherman-Howard league for many years. He also enjoyed dancing, traveling and bowling. He bowled in 25 National Bowling tournaments and was honored with a plaque in 2012. He and Arlene spent 16 winters in McAllen, TX.
