Growing up in the good ole days in Gary, Bob spent his days in Junedale Little League and on any basketball court he could find. He was quite the athlete. It was there he found the love of his life, Anne, both graduates of Lew Wallace High School.  As a serial entrepreneur, he owned Radio Shacks, as well as Rico's Restaurant & M&R Diner. He enjoyed his bowling league days, playing poker with his buddies, and watching his granddaughters grow. He was a kind, patient and devoted dad who we will miss beyond measure.
