commitment to the students he taught and the young men he coached throughout his
career. He was a champion of the underdog and helped the young men and women he worked with achieve their personal best. Bob was well known in the community for the many achievements of the football teams he coached, however, his greatest joy was received through his family and many lifelong friends. Except for a stint in the army and to attend
college, he lived his entire life in Dayton graduating from Centerville High School (1951), Wilmington College (1955), and Xavier University (1969).
