In his spare time he enjoyed watching his grandkids play sports, Nascar, fishing, being out in the sun, and keeping up on current news. Bob was a kind and caring man that was happiest when with his wife Carolyn and surrounded by family. He was a dad, a stepdad, a grandpa to 6 grandkids and a great-grandpa to 9 great-grandkids. He is survived by his wife Carolyn Toleman, his son David Toleman, and 3 step children Marsha, Jeff and Scott. He was preceded in death by his first wife Doreen Toleman, his 5 siblings, and his great-grandson Logan Fondaw.
