Bob High – 2/18/1944 – 5/17/2019 (from Obiturary)
Bob graduated from MacArthur High School and Millikin University. He met his wife, Paulette (Pritts) when they both worked at Haines & Essicks. They were married on November 23, 1967 and had a son, Ryan (Susan) High, and daughter, Betsy (Lucas) Crockett.
He enjoyed the simple things in life like building his home, mowing his lawn, vacationing in Clearwater Beach, FL, hunting for mushrooms, telling silly jokes, and being a father and grandfather.
He loved classic cars, especially Corvettes and Mustangs. He was also an animal lover. He had many dogs, rabbits, flying squirrels, cats, and pet fish by his side throughout his life. Unfortunately, he suffered for many years with many physical issues and was mostly bedridden at McKinley Place Nursing Home but still the same old Bob in spirit.
