An Eagle Scout and Boy Scout Troop leader, Bob graduated Webster High School in 1947 and honed his landscape skills by working at Hallauer’s Nursery, Josh Gardens Florist and Greenview Landscape. After a short stint in the Army (1950) he started his own landscape company (Green Thumb) which he ran for over 50 years. Winter employment included Rochester Steel Treating Works, Town of Webster, R. B. Mason, U.S. Post Office, Dorn Optical, Photometric Data Systems, Bardi Tool & Die, J.C. Plastics. In his younger years Bob enjoyed traveling in the U.S. and Bermuda, photography was active in the American Legion, the Iroquois Social Club and his bowling league. He was an avid reader of financial news and kept his mind sharp by daily Sudoku expert challenges. Tea with friends at Charlie’s, the Nutcracker and other local Webster haunts gave him great joy.
