Bob graduated in 1976 and then worked at a roller rink which he loved and created many lasting stories and memories. Then he joined the U.S. Coast Guard in 1980. All of his friends will remember him by his nickname, “Sluggo”. He was very proud to serve his country, and met many close lifelong friends.
