Bob enjoyed camping, fishing, his flower beds, but mostly spending time in his “garage”. Above all, he treasured the time spent with his family. Bob was very proud of his three sons he and Katherine raised and for providing for their and Katherine's every need. His grandchildren were a very special part of his life and enjoyed their activities.
His inspiration and love lives on through the hearts of his wife of 38 years, Katherine of Strum; his children and grandchildren, Jonathan of New Richmond; Nathan (Emily) and their children Brady, Allyson, Andrea and Katelyn of Elk Mound; Jeremy (special friend, Angela Miller) and his children, Blake and Brett, and Angela’s children, Alexiss, Teegan and Jacob all of Elk Mound; two grand-dogs, Kayne and Mazey; a sister, Judith Hacker of Chippewa Falls; a brother, Donald (Susan) Rosenthal of Osseo; loving parents-in-law, Claire and Lucille Gray of Rochester, Minn.; two brothers-in-law, Daniel (Rosalie) Gray, of Strum and Bruce (Linda) Gray of Eau Claire; two sisters-in-law, Vickie (Howard) TePoel and Sue Ann (Rick) Hyde both of Rochester, Minn.; many nieces and nephews, cousins, and the many special friends who will always remain with Bob in his heart.
