Bob was a graduate of Purdue University and was a proud member of the Purdue Drill Team. He was a dedicated sales and marketing professional who was acknowledged by many he worked with as kind and encouraging. Even after retirement, he continued as a consultant in the Marketing industry as a partner at Suncoast Marketing Partners and also enjoyed staying involved in the business world as a sales merchandiser. Bob was an inspiration to many and could always be counted on for words of wisdom. He was known for detailed planning and as the “go to” guy for fun plans.
