Bob enjoyed the outdoors, feeding the birds, spending time in his yard, watching the latest news and weather, and listening to professional baseball on his radio. He had a strong passion for gardening; If you ever wanted to find Bob, he would be outside wandering around in his yard admiring his vegetable plants and the beautiful flowers that he would plant each year. He had a green thumb and would sometimes spend the entire day outside working in his garden.
