Survivors include his wife Susie, former wives Mattie, Vickie, and Annette. Children; Brent, Bobby L. and Teresa (Mattie), Bobby H. Jr. (Vickie), Brandie (Annette), and 10 grandchildren.
Bob was a complex and versatile man. He was an accomplished multi sport athlete in his youth who later coached youth sports for many years. His military service ended after six years with a severe injury that plagued him for the rest of his life.
He operated several successful businesses of different types summarized well by Brent. "He could build a house, repair a car engine, design and build a commercial waterslide, do the butterfly with me on his back, find great camping spots, break hearts, create smiles. Biggest smartest baddest man I knew for a long long time". Rest in peace.
