Then he became an active member of Westminster Presbyterian Church where he was an Elder, choir member and Mr. Fixit for many years. Bob was a true Christian gentleman. He was devoted to his church and enjoyed working there on various projects. He could be heard whistling favorite hymns as he worked on various jobs.
