In the early 1950's, Bob owned and operated the "Frederick Transit Co, Inc", providing city and charter bus service to the Frederick area. Later he worked for Fort Detrick in various capacities until retirement in 1985.
After retirement, he still loved working with his hands, building and/or fixing just about anything, for anybody that needed him. There were few problems he could not solve.
