He married Naomi Prest and had 4 daughters. He later remarried Lola Dement and melded two families together. They lived in Blue Lake California for many years until Bob retired from the Timber Industry, they moved to Arcata, California and he later moved to McKinleyville. Bob was a private man who loved working in the woods, it took several attempts at retirement before it stuck.

His hobbies were leather working, he made beautiful purses and wallets for his family. He also was a certified small machines mechanic and enjoyed tinkering with small engines. He was diagnosed with Cancer in May of 2018 and lost his battle a short thirty days later. Special thanks to his grandchildren, Holly Grimes, Ryan Duggan and great granddaughter Myranda Pfingsten for taking time out of their busy lives to stay with him. He always had a smile and a "good morning" for them even after the roughest of nights. Their loving care and assistance enabled Bob to stay in his home until the end.
