Bob lived a full life.  He was born in Jerome, AZ to Tyler and Edith Folsom.  He served in the US Army from 1946 – 1948, stationed in Germany.  He served in the military Police and in the Criminal Investigation Division.  He worked as a very successful accountant and was involved in community service.  He was V.P. and lifetime member of the Optimist International.  He worked with the club for over 50 years which benefited the youth of the area.

Besides being a prominent business owner, he was an avid golfer.  He played many courses in the USA and around the world.  He played every golfers bucket list.  If he did hit a bas shot he would say, “Damn right hand”.
