Bob was born and raised in Decatur Georgia where he graduated high school as a Decatur Bulldog in 1969. Bob was a kind and loving person who always put others before himself. No matter the situation you could always count on Bob to be there for support, guidance, and a helping hand. With Bob it didn't matter about your age or race it was all about his love and caring for people which made others want to be around him.

Bob was an awesome photographer that enjoyed capturing photos of nature and the many places that he traveled throughout the world. Bob also enjoyed spending time with family and friends but most of all he had a passion for sports. Bob was an avid golf, tennis, Braves, Falcons, and Bulldogs games.
