He retired as a Lieutenant Colonel from the Transportation Corps of the United States Army in 1978 having served two tours of duty in Vietnam as a helicopter pilot. While in service, among many commendations, he was awarded the Purple Heart, the Air Medal, the Bronze Star, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Joint Service Commendation Medal, the Army Commendation Medal and the Legion of Merit.

Bob, while still able to attend, never missed a soccer, baseball, softball, or basketball game, swimming or gymnastics meet, dance, chorus or orchestra recital in which his children or grandchildren participated. He loved to play golf and was an avid USC Gamecock fan. He was a friend to all and was always the first there to lend a helping hand.
