Bob was born on December 1, 1933 in Hardin, Montana to his parents Adolph and Lula Schaak.

Bob followed that passion into the Marines where he received an Honorable discharge in 1956. Bob never let go of his passions and built a farm in Billings, MT, where he could fly his planes, dusting his crops. Bob lived by the quote “The Sky is the Limit” and passed his love for nature down to his children and grandchildren. In 1962, Bob married the love of his life, Mary Ann. They kept adventures alive by traveling the US in their RV, creating memories with their children and grandchildren.
