During his career as a computer programmer, he worked for several companies retiring in 2013 as a contract employee of Frito Lay in Plano, Texas. After retiring, Bob and Patty split their time between Estes Park and Green Valley, Arizona.

His daughter, Susan, was the love of his life and he loved being around her and her family in Sahuarita, Arizona.. Everybody loved Bob's sense of humor, his wittiness and his "Bobisms." He enjoyed collecting Southwest art and "artifacts," reading, hiking, music, particularly jazz music, traveling, working on his retirement tan, spending time with family and friends and, of course, pickleball. He was an auto enthusiast and loved his Jack Russell terriers, Wally and Beaver.

He was preceded in death by his parents, June and Norb Bartlett, and a sister, Pennie Riecss.
