Robert Stanley Smith was born in Decorah, Iowa on Nov. 1, 1959 to Stanley and Dorothy (Rosenbaum) Smith.
Family was always a priority in Bob’s life. He enjoyed spending time with his mother, Dorothy, often watching old movies and Wheel of Fortune together. He loved spending time with his grandchildren, and like any grandpa he was always spoiling them. He had interests in woodworking, antiques, coins and collectibles. His face would light up when he found something special.
Bob had a passion for Star Trek; he was a Trekkie through-and-through. He loved animals, especially his two cats, Bing Bing and Cricket.
Bob is survived by his three daughters, Angie (Michael Zimmerman) Breitsprecher of North Liberty, Iowa, Tabby (Suzi) Spalj of Iowa City, Iowa and Bre Smith of Decorah; grandchildren, Lily and Jacob, Cayden and Caylee; mother, Dorothy Smith of Cresco; siblings, Fred (Denise Macal) Smith of Cresco, Rick Smith of Cresco, Karen (Craig) Wedderspoon of Waukon, Iowa and Deb Priest of Cresco; sister-in-law, Kris Smith; and nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father, Stanley, and brother, William “Bill” Smith.
