Bob's activities were numerous and included visiting his home away from home, the Neptune Diner where he enjoyed coffee, visiting and teasing with friends. He also enjoyed over the years horseshoes, bowling and working outdoors. One of his greatest joys was spending time with his beloved grandchildren, the little ones (Ethan, Madalynn and Zoey). Whether playing on the swing set or watching them play with toys they brought a smile to his face.

He will be missed by all and as only Bob could say it best "WHATEVER!"
