After the Army, Bob thoroughly enjoyed working as a cattleman at Northern Pump Farms, later he worked at a steel mill, was a truck driver for many years with AO Smith, then returned to the family farm and worked with his brother Leo until his retirement. Bobby G loved having fun with his family. Whether it was snow skiing, boating, golfing, betting on the gray at horse races or enjoying a cold beer and cigar on the porch listening to music. He sang along with every song whether he knew the words or not. He laughed, he thought and he cried. That’s a heck of a day. Bob had so many full days and will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
