Bob and Evelyn loved to travel and RV across the country. They both loved their retirement, living in Florida during the winters and traveling across Ohio looking for the ultimate best Mexican food. Bob could eat Taco Bell every day if given the chance. He loved using his hands to build things, from small to large, he loved tools, fishing, cards of all sorts, good food, family and especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He will always be remembered as the King of one liners and zings, his sense of humor was incredible and his laugh was infectious. He was always there to lend a hand no matter what, and expected nothing in return, his generosity was boundless.
