After his service, he moved to Wellington, KS where he was the Human Resource Director for Welco Plessey Airline Factory for 38 years.

In 1972, he married his beautiful wife Judy (Gift) Harding. This brought daughter Mandy (Scott) Blumenfeld into the fold.

After retirement they made 2 moves, first to Sierra Vista, AZ where they lived practically on the golf course.  The second move was to Las Cruces, NM where they still enjoyed the warm weather and made some amazing friends.

Bob was an avid golfer up until the last couple years. He had played on golf courses all over the US. He was also on a bowling league for several years, and very active member of the ELKS Lodge.
