Bob lived life to the fullest and pursued excellence in all he did. This passion for excellence, applied to the pursuit of his many hobbies, made him a scratch golfer, bowler, pro performance sports car driver where he won many SCCA Regional championships, while also competing in IMSA endurance races.
He was also a Master Falconer for the past 27 years. He not only owned and trained many species of hawks, but also worked as the Royal Falconer for the Medieval Times Dinner Theater in both Maryland and Texas where he enjoyed speaking with guests, educating them on the art of falconry, and providing falconry demonstrations for the many crowds.
Bob worked for United Airlines for over 31 years in customer service and air freight. In addition, he earned both his private and commercial pilot’s licenses.
He is preceded in death by his father and mother, Robert and Margaret, and brother, Billy.
He is survived by his childhood sweetheart and wife of 56 years, Judith “Ski” Lower; his children, Rob (Julie), David (Laura), and Tracy (Michael); his six grandchildren (Cameron, Tyler, Alesha, Grace, Brody, and Colton); sisters, Judy (George) and Patricia, and niece, Samantha.
A celebration of Bob’s life will be held with family and friends at a later date.
