I was fortunate to have a unique perspective of Bob in the fact that they shared their son Scott with us and we shared Michelle with their family. More than once Bob just called me out of the blue and said something like " Aren't we about as lucky as anybody can be to have the grandkids we 've got, They're just awesome!" As tough as Bob was i think I can safely say that the only thing he loved more than feeding cattle was his family. I will always greatly respect him for that.
Specifically remember a time when Jim and I were tasked by Bob to move 100-lb tractor weights across the shop during teenage years. Bob left us to our task for a while and returned disappointed in the progress. Evidently carrying them 1 at a time was not sufficient. After a quick scolding he carried 4 of them across the room! The lesson has served me well ever since -- work as hard as you can and get the job done! Love my Uncle Bob. Appreciate the lesson very much!
Bob and I had some great disscussions about feeding cattle. My favorite was me telling him to go ahead and buy a few of the fleshy cattle at my sale too, not just the green ones! He told me: “tell them farmers to sell me the cattle AND the corn! We’d both be better off!” He was good to me in the auction business and to my family!
Thank you !! to all Foote Family for all the support you have offer me taking care of my family, and providing education for my kids, thanks to them I was able to offer everything they needed, and specially to Bob for making all this possible, May God bring peace to all his family !
