After moving to Cincinnati, Bob began working for Procter & Gamble as a Design Engineer where he had a very successful career. They welcomed two children into their home.

His children remember him as a supportive father always providing unwavering love and comic relief. He was an advocate for higher education and continued learning, always pushing for a better future. 

Bob was affectionately known by his grandchildren as “Beam(ba)”. He was an incredibly kind, generous and intelligent individual and was always quick with a joke.
