Bob was the eldest of 8 siblings, their dad passed when Bob was barely in high school. He had to leave school and get a job to support the family. He started working at Brown Shoe Factory where he met his wife, Euvonne. When Bob turned 18, he joined the carpenters union and started hanging drywall in St. Charles county. He went on to travel the region running projects and later helping to start Wies Drywall and Construction Corp. Through the construction business, Bob was able to touch many people's lives. He garnered great respect from employee's and the construction community. Bob also loved ranching and his cattle.  He was a pioneer in the Limousin breed of cattle. To date, his ranch has either shown or bred animals that have earned 27 grand or reserve grand titles nationally. Bob was also inducted into the Missouri Limousin Breeders Hall of Fame in 1998.  

 

In lieu of flowers, the family asks to make donations to the North American Limousin Junior Association.
