Bob played on several softball, bowling, and golf leagues throughout his lifetime. His hobbies included watching his Detroit Lions and Detroit Tigers and spending time with his family, who he loved dearly. He also enjoyed attending the high school football games of the Struthers Wildcats and cherished his family beach vacations and cruises. Bob was a devoted member of the Faith Community Covenant Church in Youngstown, where he was as an usher for several years and served roles on a variety of committees. He never missed a Sunday service.
