Bob married Madeline (Petersen) Peterson on October 9, 1954, at Dannebrog, NE. They were blessed to be given 4 children: Theodore (Ted), David, Laura (Ken) Roberts, and Amy (John) Kerrins. They, in turn, blessed them with 4 grandchildren and one great-grandson.

Bob was active in his church. He sang in the choir, served as council president, and pitched in wherever needed. He loved gardening and grew enough vegetables to share with family, friends and church family. The newest love of his life was his new great-grandson, Charlie. Their favorite activity was eating whipped cream together.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents, 6 siblings; Maurice, Eleanor, Ivy, Ruby, Johnny, and Beatrice
