Bob was an amazing man who touched so many lives.  He was full of life and would always light up any room with his positive and fun energy.  He was always there when you needed him.  He loved his sports and cars, especially the Detroit Tigers and his beloved Lions.  He spent his free time living life to the fullest­ and enjoying his family and friends.
