successful ventures as a business owner, property owner and land developer.

Married to the love of his life Sharon Kernica for 35 years, Bob and Sharon raised a family of three wonderful boys and together continued many successful business adventures including creating and owning CorkScrew Bar & Grille.

Bob enjoyed flying, boating, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, being a long time Anglers Club member, classic cars, and traveling to fun unique places where "palm trees grow naturally". He also loved music, especially the Beatles, George Jones, Willie Nelson, and Elton John.
