Bob served as the president of the Danville Youth Football Conference and was the franchise holder for the Tornado Youth Football program for many years. He and Mickey touched the lives of many kids and families and in April 2012, former players hosted a Tornado football reunion in their honor.
He enjoyed Illini football and basketball, Chicago Bears, sprint car racing and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but most of all, he was an avid fan of any and all activities his grandchildren participated in over the years. Nothing made him happier than spending time with his family. We will miss you, Bo. And from Jordan, Trey and Braden, “Hey, PawPaw, One Thing More… WE LOVE YOU!”
