Dianne Phillips, and to this union he welcomed his step-daughter, Shannon, and her children to his
From a young age, Bob had a profound love and appreciation for the outdoors, from hunting and
gardening to fishing and boating. He was able to build a successful logging and lumber company along
with farming at home, allowing him to spend most of his time outside. Even in his retirement, he was
always keeping busy. He loved to travel to visit his family, and was very proud of each of his children
and grandchildren. This was evident in the fun they shared while camping and boating. Bob was an avid
gun collector and was a Chevy Corvette enthusiast. His quick wit, humor and little quirks will be missed
especially by his family. May we hold tight to the good times and our fond memories of “Gamps”.
