Bob enjoys spending time with his wife and three children. He says his words to live by are “Work hard, play hard.” This motto plays out clearly when you see the kinds of things Bob likes to do when he’s away from work. He makes time to downhill ski, race sailboats, fly fish, and ride his bike. Wow.
