Bob grew up in Hennepin and attended school at Woodland. Following high school, he served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, earning a Combat Infantry Badge. Following an Honorable Discharge on October 16, 1954, Bob returned home and began a career with the U.S. Government as a land surveyor. Following retirement, Bob owned and operated the Wingo Grocery Store in Hennepin for many years.
Bob was a very civic-minded man. He was active with numerous organizations, serving as chairman and board member, including the Hennepin Fire Department, Hennepin Cemetery Association, the West Davis Rural Water Department, the Land Surveyor’s Association, Veteran’s of Foreign Wars and Cub Scouts of America. One of his most cherished memberships was that of the First Baptist Church of Hennepin.
Bob was a very stellar individual. Although he was of a quiet nature, he stood strong in his convictions of right and wrong.
