Bob began working for Blacktop Service in the summer of 1974. At the young age of 14 he started his career as a laborer on an asphalt crew. Bob continued working as a laborer through high school and college before returning to work full time for the company. In 1980, Bob assumed responsibility for the company’s limestone crushing and dredge operations as well as Redi Mix Concrete division. In 1990 Bob took over as company President. With Bob at the helm, Blacktop Service has experienced significant and steady growth.
While Bob jokes “there is no spare time during the season”, he does enjoy bicycling, hiking, and catching the occasional game of golf when time permits. Bob most enjoys time with family, especially his three daughters and grandson, all of who bring him immeasurable joy.
