Bob was an educator inside and outside the classroom. He began his career as a Social Studies teacher and football coach. His passion and knowledge led him to become an administrator in multiple school districts. After his retirement, he continued to contribute to education by mentoring new teachers. He was a role model for the hundreds of young men and women he saw on a daily basis. Many adults walk with their heads higher from his words of wisdom. Bob was a teacher in every aspect of the word.
