Bob was born on September 25th, 1950, in Charleston, South Carolina during the eclipse of the moon and born with a pierced ear. He lived many different places around the country as his father was in the service of the Navy. He grew up mainly in Albuquerque, New Mexico and graduated from West Mesa High in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He also attended some collage at the University of New Mexico but never was enrolled, thus never graduated. Bob was a jack of all trades with a work ethic like no other and exceled wherever he went. He learned an abundance of skills across many fields that he used throughout his life. He spent many years in the 80’s managing Oldach Windows and Doors until his wife’s untimely death in 1988. Being forced into life as a single parent he began managing and maintaining apartment complexes for the Congressman Joel Hefley and his wife Lynn Hefley. After seven years with them he went on to do the same line of work at several different locations around Colorado Springs until about 2005 when he suffered from brain damage while working. He spent the rest of his life living with his son Tony and daughter-in-law Marie on 20 acres of God’s land near Guffey, Co.
During his life, Bob was a God-fearing man who loved Jesus first and foremost. He loved his children Dawn and Tony more than anything in this world. He always sought to do the right thing for God and his family no matter the consequences. Additionally, he loved his grand-children; Nicholas Sponick, Zachariah Sponick, Christopher Trafton, Jazzmine Trafton and his great-grand-child Olympia Sponick, equally as much. He always shared his joy and love of God with them and as many others as possible. He is and will always be dearly missed by his family, friends and those that knew him.
A funeral service is scheduled for 2:00pm on Friday January 28th, 2022, at Mountain Memorial in Divide.
