About Bob….."How beautifully and powerfully one life changes the world."
Bob was a great guy with a big heart who gave us all giant bear hugs. He grew up in Cold Spring, MN and loved to fix anything, from cars, trucks, & boat engines to home repairs. He befriended many as a result of his generosity to fix anything after he had put in a full day at work. Bob repaired cars for people with little money, innumerable high school/college students or co-workers that needed repairs in another state. His noted quotes, “No problem” or “I can do that” left those in need at ease and truly reflected the way Bob led his life; helping others with his hands and his heart.
Bob enjoyed playing golf, fishing, hunting and of course CARS. When he was introduced to golf he stated, “I’d never follow that stupid white ball around”. Things changed quickly once he played the game.
On December 30, 2011, Bob left his family and friends at the young age of 56, well before his time. He is missed by so many; however his siblings wish his spirit to live on through the students studying at Rocori High School in Cold Spring and in the Auto Service Technician program at the St. Cloud Community and Technical Program. The world needs more "Bob's" and we wish to honor Bob through this annual golf event. All proceeds will go towards scholarships for students at Rocori High School's "Dollars for Scholars" program and students pursuing careers in the Automotive Services Technician Program at the St. Cloud Community and Technical College.
Come and join us to continue Bob's legacy through this fun Golf Scrambler and “follow the stupid white ball around”.
