Bob grew up in Lansing, MI, and graduated with honors from Lansing Tech in 1948. He was quite an athlete earning nine letters on his high school sports team, including 1st all-city basketball team, and pitching a no-hitter in baseball.

He worked for X-Cell-O Corporation, later for Livingston County as a building inspector and then as Building and Grounds Facilities Supervisor.

He is survived by 2 sons, Tom (Vicky) Lockwood of Byron and Mike (Ruthann) Lockwood of Fowlerville, and daughter Terry (Mark) Hatt of Fowlerville, 16 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild.
