Bob learned to work at a very young age. Being one of eight children, work was mandatory, and his father worked six days a week. They raised most of the food they ate and therefore they did not go hungry. Sharing was expected including clothing and Christmas gifts.

Bob earned a B.S. degree from Central Michigan University and was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. After college, Bob moved back home to help run the family concrete business. Five years later, he began his accounting career and formed Anderson, Tuckey, Bernhardt & Doran CPA’s with offices in Cass City, Caro and Marlette.

In the fall of 1964, he met Barb and they married four months later. Bob was named Cass City Citizen of the Year in 1994. He helped organize the Cass City Booster Club and the Tuscola County Community Foundation. Bob was active member of the Cass City Lions Club, Cass City United Methodist Church, Elkland Township Zoning Review Board, Cass City Development Board, Cass City Chamber of Commerce and the Rawson Foundation Board of Directors. Following retirement, he served on the board of Gulf Waters Resort in Florida.
