Robert was born December 10, 1945 to Martin and Hettie (Kerr) Jackson in Napoleon, OH.

Dear Sandy and Bob's entire family, So sorry for your loss. Jerry & I enjoyed talking with Bob and his family so much when they were in Napoleon.

Bob was just one of those guys you always enjoyed seeing and who would just brighten your day. As a veteran, I always appreciated his support for the military and the true patriotism he displayed with his online postings. We will miss him!

Bob Jackson always had a smile for everyone and it always came with a twinkle in his eyes. I was lucky to have him as my neighbor for several years. I send sincere condolences to Bob’s family and friends.
