Bob was born in Nashville, Tennessee on December 26, 1933 to Rev.

Bob was married to his true love, Jane.  He attended TCU in Fort Worth, Texas, then served in the United States Army 485th Engineer Combat Battalion from 1953 to 1955.  He trained in Regensburg, Germany before being stationed in Passau, Germany during the height of the Cold War, where the Soviet forces were 20 miles away.  After his service to his country he attended Texas Tech University, had electrical training in Fort Worth and co-owned an electrical service company prior to entering the Academy at the Texas DPS, where he later returned to teach.  He was a former Dumas, TX resident and veteran of the Texas Department of Public Safety L&W responsible for five counties in the Texas Panhandle.  Bob continued service after retirement as a Special Texas Ranger.

In 1995 Bob was the recipient of a heart transplant at Baylor Hospital in Dallas.  After retirement he enjoyed family and friends, birdwatching, traveling back to Germany, helping others, and active involvement in Fairlanes Baptist Church in Borger, serving as Deacon.
