Bob was an avid golfer, but his passion was fishing. For Father’s Day, his dream was to go fishing just once more. Thanks to his family, that dream came true. He was in a wheelchair, but got down to the lake, caught a fish and was pushed back uphill.

Cremation has taken place, with a family service to follow at a later date.

A very special thank you to MidMichigan Hospice. They made Bob’s wish to be at home possible.
