They enjoyed 53 years together until Rita passed in 2014. Bob worked at Speed Queen in Ripon for 37 years before his retirement and lived in Berlin in the house he and Rita built. Both Robert and Rita loved animals dearly.In February of 2017, Robert moved to Brown Wilcox where he did an excellent job of keeping everyone on their toes.

He is survived by his daughter, Kristen Lowe (significant-other, Todd Jahnke), his granddaughter Hannah Lowe, whom he loved and doted on, and in-laws: Duane and Lowita Kuglin.
