He retired from Fonda, Williamsburg as an industrial mechanic with 35 years of service. Reb also worked side jobs as a handyman, builder, farmer, writer and he also owned a business, raising rabbits. He became well read and knowledgeable on everything he had interest in.
Bobby was known best for his love of motorcycles, and he truly loved to ride, ride and ride. He was an active member of ABATE of PA and was also a representative with NCOM (National Coalition of Motorcyclists).
He enjoyed camping, bike rallies, horses, boats and fishing. As he grew older he enjoyed staying in the comfort of his home and watching FOX and WWE with his wife and dogs. Bobby was a private man who spoke his mind.
