Bob lives in the Bitterroot Valley between Stevensville and Florence. He’s been an adult scouter since his son Mitch joined Pack 4915. Mitch is 12 now, and a Life Scout; Bob says it’s hard to believe just 7 years ago he was a lost and bewildered Tiger Den Leader. Since then he’s served as Assistant Cubmaster, Cubmaster, and Trainer for 4915, and Scoutmaster for Troop 1115 in Florence / Lolo. At the District level, he’s led Bitterroot District trainings, served on the District Committee, and organized Cub and Boy Scout Klondikes.
He loves sharing scouting with Mitch, but also acknowledges that it has been a treat to work with his wife, Cammie. In fact, he insists that any succcess he’s had as a scouter is directly attributable to Cammie (Cub Advancement Chair, Troop Treasurer, and She Who Keeps the Scoutmaster On Track) and the amazing boys and adults who really make the Pack and Troop go.
Bob’s favorite scouting experiences include Woodbadge, climbing at Lolo Creek, sailing at Melita, and backpacking in the Bitterroot Mountains. In between scouting events, he squeezes in time to serve on a few church committees, teach Sunday School, and even hold down a day job, teaching social studies at Florence High School.
