He and his wife Betty are together once again for eternity. Bob was born on March 1, 1925 in Lakeville to the late Charles E. and Anna O. (Barkley) Fuchs. He has remained a lifelong resident of Lakeville. On November 15, 1946 in Lakeville, Bob and Betty J. Frick were united in marriage. Betty preceded her husband in death on April 25, 2012 after 65 years of marriage.

Bob is survived by his three daughters, Jan A.

Bob retired in 1982 after 30 years of employment with Bendix Corporation and also worked at Oliver's for seven years. He was also self-employed in farming. He was a great lover of the outdoors and enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening, and trapping as well as wood working projects in his workshop. Bob proudly served his country with the United States Navy during WWII. He was a family man and centered his life around the love for his family. There was nothing more special to him than his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He leaves behind a wonderful legacy. Special thanks to Bob's buddy, Tawana Robertson, for her kind and compassionate care over the last seven years.

What would anyone say to put all the
Kindness, Friendship and Love under one Name,Bobbie Fuchs.!!!!
Bob was not only the (best friend my father ever had )but his family was our family.Always so generous,trophey fish always filled my dads refrigerator . Huge mushrooms ,winning delicious tomatoes ,,cucumber,and any other vegetable were
A pure treat.He could make anything out of wood and was so proud of his fields and woods behind his home.Speaking of homes he helped build my father!s home.
When Bob's wife,(the love of his life), was still home,I walked in one day to smell the most delicious sent from their kitchen.On every table and counter their had to be at least 40 homemade pies.
His farm was a reward for quality .
It wasnt all about vegetables,farm ,but he could do anything.Whether it was to give Harry Carry competion to know what the next play would be
wether it would be in Wrigley or at his grandchildren's games. MY parents and Bob and Betty grew up together in hard era of our history.Somehow to look at those two couples you would never know.The stories,the laughs the fishing trips and oh my,the New Year Eve partys!
I remember when my Pop was in Hospice
Care,Here came Bob and Betty.That visit turned out to be the last time those two friends would see each other again.That room was filled with old stories and a lot of humor and love. .The laughter will go on in my heart forever from that visit.One was the story of the ol' soda fountain where My mom and Betty worked.I wont go into it ,but the boys had more whipping cream than they could handle.Ohhh how they talked of memories,grammer school memories Bendix memories,The visit I wished would never of ended.
The kindness of The Fuchs',before my fathers'funeral they came with a van of food.A van of friendship, a never ending friendship.With Bob there helping to talk to so many friends,tears and laughs we got through it because of friends like Bob but there is only one Bob Fuchs.!!!He was there to help me and listen when I could visit although now they will never now be enough ..He knew our loss for He had been through so many of his own heartbrakes.
If you know The Bob Fuch family your lucky however if your friends with the Fuchs 'you are the luckiest people God ever gave a blessing to.God bless you Bob,you will always be missed and cherished.Thank you for being the best.
