Bob was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He worked for Celanese
Chemical Company for over 27 years. He also served in the US Army Reserves and the Texas
Army National Guard. He enjoyed traveling, doing projects around the house, entertaining the
children in his family, and he could always make people laugh. He was an active and devoted
