Bob met the love of his life, Mallie Jean Bruce, and they were married in Tulsa on September 26, 1974. They loved to travel in their motor home and “Wintering in Texas.” Bob and Mallie were known for being “Winter Texans.” It was not uncommon to find Bob shooting pool with his Winter Texas Friends. Some of the favorite sightseeing locations of Bob and Mallie were the West Coast, Rain Forests and Canada. Bob always enjoyed eating a plate of Mexican food and playing cards with Mallie and friends.
