Bob and his wife were business owners operating Farris Well Service since June 1975. Bob enlisted in the U.S. Army after high school, proudly serving as an MP in Bamberg, Germany. He loved his Bamberg MP Police reunions. He was a ?hands on? dad, even when his sons were little he would take them with him on his errands. If at all possible, he didn?t miss a parent/teacher meeting, school program, ball game, or family dinner. Bob & his wife purchased a trailer at Logan, NM very close to Ute Lake when their sons were still preschool age; it was there that Bob enjoyed teaching them to fish. As the boys grew Dad & Mom would pull them behind the boat on an inner tube, then later on skiing. Bob believed ?the more the merrier? so his sons took friends, invited in-laws and other friends came often. He loved the annual family vacations to Red River, NM that his mother-in-law, Juanita Perry, started in 1983. Yes, he got along with his mother-in-law. He did love to push her buttons and make her laugh! Bob loved his Dad and Mom and loved telling stories of his childhood and teenage days with them. Bob was a lifetime member of the VFW and was also active in many other organizations such as the Elks Lodge, American Legion and Eagles in Logan, NM and the Turpin High School Booster Club.
