Bob graduated from The Dalles High School and attended Mt. Hood Community College. He married Yulanda (Cumiford) Owen, although the couple later divorced, they remained great friends and raised two children.
He loved camping, fishing, hunting, and spending time with his grandchildren, daughter and son-in- law. He had many friends including Dave and Erik Wilburn and his best bud Max (pet). Bob was always a fun and loving person, a bit of jokester, light hearted and according to family and friends, the sweetest person ever.
