Raised in the countryside just outside of Shamokin, Bob graduated from Our Lady of Lourdes Regional High School in Coal Township in 1998 and (after a two and a half year stop at Allentown College/DeSales University in Center Valley) graduated from Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove in 2002.
Bob is engaged and has two sons: Brodey and Cade.
What was supposed to be a thrilling ride down a ski slope inside a giant inflatable ball ended in tragedy for the two Russian men inside.
The transparent plastic ball -- called a zorb -- veered off course and sailed over a precipice in the rugged Caucasus Mountains of southern Russia. One man died and the other was badly injured. The terrifying ride was captured on video.
