Bob brought joy into the lives of his parents, Lyle and Ann (Winter) Patterson on September 22, 1950. He was a Buffalo Center Bison and graduated with the class of 1969. After high school, he attended Iowa Lakes Community College in Estherville. Then went on to obtain his Bachelor of Science in Education at Northeast Missouri State University in 1974, known today as Truman State University in Missouri.

His teaching career started in Kirksville, MO., where he taught for two years. He then taught school at Alta, IA., until he planted his roots in Rudd Rockford Marble Rock, where he taught 5th and 6th grade. He was a golden apple award winner and was beloved teacher for 27 years before his retirement in 2005.

In April of 1984, he was United in marriage to Pam Asbjornson and they were blessed with two children, Brandi and Travis. He and Pam grew apart but remained great friends and he remained an amazing father to Brandi and Travis.

Amongst the things he loved the most were his family, following Kelly Shyrock wherever he raced at and watching the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Bob could not go anywhere without stopping to visit with a friend, co-worker or one of his students. He always had a smile to share and a joke to tell to make those laugh around him. The moments of laughter he shared with others will be cherished for a lifetime to come.
