He was a 1975 graduate of E.L. Bowsher High School in Toledo, OH and is an alumnus of The University of Toledo.  He built an Electrical Engineering career specializing in robotics at Ford Motor Co. most recently retiring from Johnson Controls.  Bob embraced carrying forward family Holiday cooking traditions, loved the water and related sports and vintage automobiles. He took great pride in his lawn and garden and was looking forward to honing his golf skills at his recently purchased golf community home in Florida. He will be remembered for his dry and sometimes sarcastic (but absolutely lovable) sense of humor, love of watching classic adventure and espionage movies with loved ones and friends and most importantly his kind, gentle, and understanding demeanor.
