His personal interests include spending time with the ones he loves, as a coach for his daughter’s soccer team to guided fishing tours with his father. When at home he can be found grilling or gardening with his wife, daughter and their extended family. Ask anyone who knows and they will tell you that a description of Bob would not be complete without mentioning his enthusiasm for film and all things Disney.
