Bob opened Bob Satellite and he was the first DirecTV dealer in the state, as his satellite dealership grew, he decided to add Bob’s Appliance Store. Everyone would buy their appliances from Bob, had a good heart, and would help people with price when money was tight. His love for music led him to open Bob’s DJ services. Bob could never pass up a good deal, which led them to their next adventure purchasing Shady’s Gathering Place; everyone can remember bringing their families up there to eat and everyone looked forward to Sandy’s dessert, this was a staple especially before football and basketball games; but on Friday and Saturday nights people would gather to have a good time; Bob could be found on stage doing one of his favorite things singing karaoke. he took care of the entertainment booking bands or being a DJ for the evening. Sandy oversaw the food and made homemade desserts that everyone could not wait to eat. There were a lot of great memories made at Shady’s. Bob and Ashley started and operated Sheridan Auto Sales together and he looked forward to attending car auctions always looking for a good deal.
