He was born September 8, 1943, in Linton, Indiana to Lester F. Reed and Emma Katheryn Sampson. Bob was raised from five years up by Ray E. Goodwin, his stepdad. Bob and Judy were married on June 28, 1981, in Mount Carmel, Illinois.

Bob thoroughly loved and enjoyed the time spent with his wife and family. He loved selling for Wabash Food Service, it did not feel like a job to him but a time to meet and talk with people. Bob had such a caring and giving heart, that he enjoyed volunteering for Circle A Servolution in Allendale and Helping Hands in Vincennes. For eight years he was known as “Bingo Bob” to many at Oakview Heights, spending time there playing bingo with the residents and making sure they always had a prize for winning. Bob enjoyed his vacations to Orange Beach and Florida. He was a huge IU Basketball and Mount Carmel Aces sports fan.

Left to cherish Bob’s memory are his wife, his children, Lester (Roxann) Reed, Ernie (Lydia) Reed, Lee (Gordon) Bend, Becky (Brian) Horrall, Jeff (Tammy) Dzikowski, Jill (Rick) Kruse, John (Melissa) Dzikowski, Jody (Danny) Golden, brother, Ray (Jean) Goodwin, and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
