A celebration of life will be held at 2:30 PM on Wednesday, September 23, 2015 at Lighthouse Funeral & Cremation, three miles east of M-66 on M-60, in Union City. Interment will follow at Sherwood Cemetery. A gathering of friends and family will also be held at the Lighthouse from 4-7 PM on September 23. Bobby was born August 7, 1936 in Oak Valley Township, Minnesota, the son of George F. and Effie I. (Becker) Macomber. The family moved to Michigan when Bobby was very young and he attended Homer Community Schools. He served honorably in the U.S. Army as a medical corpsman, stationed at Ft. Hood in Texas. On November 24, 1972, he married the former JoAnn E. Cole at Lyon Lake United Methodist Church. During his adult life, Bobby worked for Rieth-Riley Construction and was a welder at EFI in Centralia, Illinois from 1989-2002. He retired to the Union City area 13 years ago. A gentle, happy man, Bobby was prone to starting conversations with everyone he met and quickly put them at ease. He enjoyed golfing in a league at Turtle Creek, participating in Moose Lodge activities in MI and in IL, traveling with his wife, going dancing, and dining out together on Friday nights. Bobby is survived by his wife of 42 years, JoAnn; daughters Diane Woods of Tekonsha and Kathy (Matt) Hoover of Lowell; his sisters Marie (Jim) Reilly of FL and Kay Milne of Marshall; his grandchildren Daniel (Meagan) Cummings, Eric (Lisa) Cummings, Amanda (Eric) Davis, Kevin Culp, and Misty (Aaron) Robbins; and seven great-grandchildren.
