During his career he wore many hats, residing and working in Colorado, California, Oklahoma, the United Kingdom and finally back to Colorado, where he and his wife, Marilyn settled in Highlands Ranch. Along the way, Bob always generous and found time for family, friends and neighbors regardless of their need or circumstances.
