Bob was born on August 19, 1953, in Fond du Lac, WI. He graduated from Winnebago Lutheran Academy, where he met the love of his life, Mary Schmolesky. His grade school and high school friends knew him as "Cubby." He attended UW Fond du Lac and UW Oshkosh. He was proud to say he paid for his education by working in grocery stores, and by winning foosball tournaments.

Bob was very community-minded. He was never afraid to roll up his sleeves and get the work done. He was involved with the Jefferson Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club, receiving the Paul Harris Award. He loved his time with Gemuetlichkeit Days, helping Mary with the parade for 16 years. He loved his days owning Coffman's Super Valu. He was always thinking of new ways to entertain his customers. He was also proud to be part owner of the Shell Main Street Station in Jefferson for many years. Bob enjoyed many past hobbies, including golfing, downhill skiing, and running. He ran 6 marathons, including the New York and Boston, all with good times.
