Bob was a very talented, local ‘Mr. Fix-It’ guy. He could fix just about anything and enjoyed a challenging job. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, motorcycle trips, traveling, gardening, and was a great storyteller. Bob was a stranger to none, a proud Patriot and Veteran.

He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Marilyn, his children Lori (CJ Hoffart) and Mike Breitling, his siblings Laurene ‘Reenie’ Breitling-Hollister(Kenn), Ken(Susan) Breitling, and Diane Hardy, nieces, nephews, extended family, and his cat Rascal.
