When asked what made him interested in volunteering for the Red Cross, he said, “I had a good life and a good job and so once I retired, I just figured I’d give back. I decided to help the Red Cross because they helped my family.”
When Bob was growing up, his family home was affected by flooding that occurred and his family received help, as well as furniture donations from the Red Cross. Bob said his brother actually still has one of the dresser drawers his family received back from when they were both children.
When Bob is not volunteering for the Red Cross, you can find him fishing, hiking, and cheering on the Tennessee Vols. When asked if there was a message Bob would like to share with anyone, he added, “I think when everyone retires, they should give back to the community and I think the best way to do it is the Red Cross.”
Bob is a hardworking and valued volunteer that we, as well as the state of Tennessee, are so lucky to have!
