Service and volunteering were always important to Bob. Bob was a mentor for the Urban League Relay Program, a volunteer for the Cathedral Soup Kitchen, Habitat for Humanity, Hand in Hand Ministry (Belize Mission trip), and donated 137 units of blood to the American Red Cross. Bob was a Boy Scout Leader, a coach for Volleyball, Soccer, and Baseball, and was always willing to lend a hand wherever he was needed. Bob served on the University of Louisville Alumni Board and as the Speed Scientific School Alumni Board President. Bob loved family, friends, traveling, and giving of his time to make the world a better place.
