He is survived by Maxine, his wife of over 70 years, their two children, Victoria Jones of Guilford and Douglas Seitz of Phoenix, six grandchildren, Jesse, Jennifer, Andrew, Michelle, Ashley, Alexander, and two great-grandchildren, Ian and Adam. Bob and his younger sister Kay grew up in Clinton, Iowa during the Depression. He attended Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa where he met Maxine.

He received promotions which took him and Maxine from Cincinnati to Chicago, New Jersey, Boston, Kansas City, and then back to Cincinnati in 1964 as the Head of the Central Manufacturing Division of the Company. Bob retired from P&G in 1984, and served as an auxiliary police officer for the Cincinnati suburb of Indian Hill.
