Bob was a true lover of life! He worked in the mortgage  banking industry and real estate industry until his retirement in 2012. He loved to travel, loved all sports, but above all he loved  his family and the St. Louis Cardinals. His amazing outlook on life and his wonderful laugh will be greatly missed by many.
