Community Involvement

  • There's not a lot of free time in Bob's life, but if he's not working hard - he's playing hard. He has personally retired from most sports, but enjoys a good game of golf on occasion. His love of sports has transformed into quality time with his kids, cheering them on in soccer, baseball, basketball and swimming practices or games.
