Bob loved being outdoors and enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, traveling and nature walks. He especially loved the late night walks through Slumber Valley Campground with his loving dog and faithful companion, Pierre. He had many talents and many jobs throughout the years. He was a painter, a carpenter, a merchant mariner, and a handy man, among other things. But his favorite job of all was at Slumber Valley Campground where he spent decades living and working. It was his passion and his home.

Arrangements were entrusted with Sheldon Funeral Homes, SR 6, Meshoppen.
