Bob was born August 28, 1936, in Detroit to the late Ethel and Patrick Finn. He moved to West Branch as a child. He graduated from West Branch High School in 1954 and then attended Bay City Junior College, Albion College and graduated from Central Michigan University. During breaks, Bob was on the West Branch Fire Department and was a part time police officer. He later received his master’s degree in education from Michigan State University and was also an instructor there. Bob worked for Saginaw Township Schools, first as a teacher and swim coach at Mackinaw Middle School, then as assistant principal at Ottawa Middle School and finished his career as principal of Sherwood Elementary School. After his retirement he attended seminary and became a deacon at Trinity Episcopal Church in West Branch. While serving at Trinity, he fed thousands, running the Ogemaw County Christian Fellowship Food Pantry and was a chaplain at the Hospice of Helping Hands in West Branch. He enjoyed the cottage that he built himself at Clear Lake and nearly every summer night could be found taking a sunset pontoon cruise with his family and neighbors.
