He was born in Superior, February 7, 1941, the son of Merle B. and Cornelia A. (Solom) Picard.

Bob is also survived by a multitude of friends that he encountered throughout his life. Bob could strike up a conversation with anyone and never met a stranger. He was known for his incredible memory and could recall people, conversations and details years after they had occurred. Bob was a story teller, a New York Yankees fan, an avid Packer fan, a veracious reader, and was always available to help a friend in need. His most recent love was his dog and cat Pico and Ebby who were his constant companions. He spent the majority of the last 43 years of his life dedicated to the service of others using his unique abilities to altruistically help people. He also loved bowling and playing pool.
