Bob was born in Bay City, Michigan on December 2, 1939 to the late Andrew W. and Charlotte (Albracht) Stevenson. He proudly served for his country as a member of the United States Army. On July 14, 1962, Bob married the love of his life, Rose Erndt, at St. Norbert Church in Munger, Michigan and she survives him.

Bob was a member at St. Jude Thaddeus Parish – St. John’s Church, member of the Bay County Veterans Honor Guard, American Legion Post #18, Knights of Columbus #2740, and the P.L.A.V. Post #162. He was a girl’s softball and boy’s baseball coach for the Essexville Hampton Little League. Bob was an avid hunter and fisherman. His family will always remember him for his love of helping people.
