Born and raised in Pueblo, Bob graduated from Centennial High School in 1979. While in Boston attending the Berklee College of Music, he met his wife, Amy Titus. They moved to San Francisco in 1986 where Amy was a librarian and Bob played in a popular local group that spent a fair amount of time touring and on the road. When their first and only child arrived, Bob quit the band and concentrated on teaching full-time. They moved to Ashland Oregon in 2014, where their daughter graduated from Ashland High School. Bob is in high demand as a saxophonist and bass player throughout the Rogue Valley.
