Bob lived and grew up on a farm west of Fulton. His first job off the farm was at Midwest Auto in Fort Scott. He then went to work at Western Ins. in 1964 in the supply department and then became an examiner. He moved the family to Southern Illinois in 1973 to be a field rep for Western Ins. In 1977 he returned to his homestead in Fulton to the love of farming with his Dad. They grew milo, wheat, corn, and soybeans. He loved farming and continued until he had to quit and retire because of MS in 1992.
He and Arlene sold the farm and moved into the town of Fulton where they still live. He became an avid woodworker repurposing old furniture into new again. He could build anything. Going to the wood show with his brothers became a cherished annual event for several years. He also enjoyed the great fishing trip to Canada he got to take one year with his brother-in-law and nephews.
Bobby A, as he was lovingly referred to by longtime family friends will be greatly missed. He was a kind and giving soul. He was a loving husband, father, granddad, and brother.
