Bob retired from Copeland Corporation in 1989.  In his younger days, Bob was a great bowler, avid fisherman and loved working outdoors in his garden.  Many times, he took his children and great grandchildren with him fishing.  In his later years, he enjoyed following his grandchildren and great grandchildren’s baseball, basketball, football and soccer games.  Bob was always there to cheer them on.  Bob also loved the Atlanta Braves and Ohio State Buckeyes, scratching off lottery tickets and watching MSNBC.  He was an exceptional man who always helped others before himself.  He will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.
