Born June 7, 1938 in Lancaster Twp., he was the son of the late Ralph and Beulah Domhoff Bieber.

Bob proudly served in the US Army from 1961 to 1963.

Bob worked for the former Pullman Standard until it closed.  He was a farmer all of his life and especially enjoyed taking care of the cows.  For many years Oliver Tractors were his favorite, but he also spent many hours on “Big Blue” as he called it.  He retired from the Edward Gilliland Farm in December of 2017.
