. ran of both WWII and the Korean War, serving in the U.S. Navy from 1942-54. Practiced medicine in Rockford from
. 1950 to 1986, as co-owner of Loves Park Medical Clinic and as an active staff member of Swedish American Hospital.
. Delivering babies was his favorite part of practicing medicine, having delivered approximately 1500 babies in Rockford
. during his career. Provided free medical care at Sabrooke in the 1960's, served as President of the medical staff at

. Rockford. Bob's first marriage to Billie Marie Nestor ended amicably after 30 years. Bob then married the "light of his
