With more dignity, grace and bravery than most, he faced a final battle. Although he knew the odds were against him, instead of laying down and giving up, Bob made the choice to fight the cancer with love, laughter, and live life to its fullest. He served his early years in the Army and with U.S. Military Intelligence and the CIA. Bob later retired from the Post Office and worked after retirement with First Interstate Bank and All Truck Corral. During his last years Bob took care of several animals and people who needed help. He always had a smile and a kind word. Even when hurting, Bob could always make you laugh, he loved people and never met a stranger. You could always count on Bob for anything, if someone was hurting he always would do what he could to make it better. He loved fishing and playing cards. During his last months he learned to make flies for fly fishing and he took up painting. Bob\'s family and his extended family was priceless to him, he loved them very much.
