Bob owned and operated Reliant Auto Glass in Morton for the last seven years.
Bob’s love of music started at a young age. He was most known for playing the bass guitar in bands and on worship teams. Playing music brought so much joy to him which led both of his children to sing and play guitar. Bob’s love for the Lord was evident in his life. He always shared his faith with all he came in contact with.
Bob also enjoyed spending time with his family. His grandkids were his everything. We take peace in knowing we will see him again one day.
He was a member of Connect Church in Washington and also involved with New Life Christian Church in Morton.
