He was born on August 31, 1924 in Escanaba, son of the late Gustaf and Louise (Depotise) Engdahl. On July 14, 1951 he married the former Marie "Pat" Couillard at St. Anthony's Church.
          Bob proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy during WWII. He retired after 36 years at the paper mill. Bob was a member of St. Anthony's church in Wells for many years. Amongst his many hobbies, Bob really enjoyed his daily 5 mile walks and biking.

          His family would like to extend a special thanks to all the caregivers at North Woods Place, who lovingly called him "Pops", and became his "adopted grandchildren" over the past two years.
