Bob lived for many years in Sacramento, Elk Grove, Rio Linda, CA and Yerington, NV. Each of those homes was lovingly improved by his superb craftsmanship. Whether it was tile work, concrete work, welding, metal fabrication, woodworking, electrical repairs, automotive repairs, building a shop, or handcrafting an entire wrought iron fence, Bob was known as “the guy who could build, fix or repair anything”.
Bob had a wonderful life filled with family, camping, fishing, goldmining, metal detecting, geocaching, ATVing, Jeeping, and RV trips. Alaska, Oregon, Washington, North Dakota, Iowa, Texas, CA Redwoods (summer), and Quartzsite, AZ (winter) were some of his favorite trips.
