He started his own business, Moe’s Heating and Air Conditioning which he successfully ran for years. The family enjoyed many years of vacationing in the summers to his brothers, Moe’s Beach Resort on Ottertail lake. Bob and Delores moved full time to Ottertail Lake in the late 1980’s before eventually moving to Battle Lake.

Bob cherished his time on Ottertail Lake, fishing and watching many sunsets. He golfed well into his late 80’s and even continued to drive cart for his friends into his early 90’s. He could often be seen with friends at their table of knowledge (Shoreline Restaurant) for coffee and sharing stories. Bob loved spending time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
