Bob was raised in San Bruno, moving to Ione in 2003. From the age of 18 he worked for Pacific Bell.

He was the greatest dad; he was always there for Christopher, even after a long day at work. He loved the outdoors and his family. He was always helping everyone; he was a giver, and just lovable Bob. He never met a stranger. He was also known as “Handy Bob;” he could fix anything. He was very talented and brilliant.
