Bob retired from Highline Hospital in Burien, WA as a Maintenance Engineer in 2007. Those who had the pleasure to know Bob knew that his biggest joy in life was his family and enjoyed embarrassing his children and grandchildren, a practical jokester with his fart machine as his favorite. While at Highline he enjoyed playing jokes & harassing the nurses. He lived life to the fullest and was always helping other people. Hobbies included golfing and woodworking, as well as travelling and football (Kansas City Chiefs, currently 4-0!) as well as working on cars and attending car shows with his son Scott and Grandson Kyle. Bob enjoyed country music and his favorite song to dance to and sing was "Baby's got her Blue Jeans" on by Mel McDaniel.
