Bob came to Texas from Kellogg, Idaho, while serving honorably in the U.S. Army and decided to stay after meeting his loving wife, Rhoda. He worked in communications and the crimes against children for the Fort Worth Police Department for 44 years before retiring in 2007. Bob also worked for the Fort Worth ISD as an announcer at multiple sporting events. His favorite location to work at was Farrington Field. Bob served as a longtime Aledo City Council member. He loved helping others and spending time with his family. Bob took many wonderful vacations over the years with them. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father and grandpa and will be dearly missed.
