Better known to family and friends as Bob. He spent most of his life surrounded by anything that had to do with a hot rod, or race car, and even took up racing the dirt track himself, against the better judgment of his mom. If it had tires, or a motor you could guarantee Bob wanted a part of it. Whether he was helping a friend work on it, or getting it ready for a car show or a track to race as his own. As his love for racing and working on cars followed him through the years, so would his eagerness to teach his children, and grandchildren.

Often spending time with any of them tinkering on the next car, in the garage. Family was the only thing to trump his need for speed. Bob is proceeded in death by his wife, father, mother, a daughter (Bobbie Jean). He is survived by two daughters, Debbie Gibson (Danny Gibson), Vicki Gwinn (Ronnie Gwinn) bonus son, Larry Senter, four granddaughters, Stefanie Shryer, Tiffanie Plummer (bonus grandson, Micheal Plummer), Kaylee Shryer, Veronica Gwinn, two grandsons Logan and Ean Gwinn.
