Bob was born September 3, 1950, in Dayton, Ohio to Carl Eales and Joyce Owens Eales. After graduating high school, he joined the U.S. Air Force. Regrettably, he was not able to fulfill his dream of a career in the military because of physical limitations. He married Phyllis Eales and they had two daughters, Kelly, and Kristin. In 1975 he married Donna Bennington and they had two children, Leslie, and Rob. Bob worked for Haliburton Oil and Gas Services and retired after a 30-year career span. During his career, the family lived in many different countries in the United Arab Emirates.
In retirement, Bob looked forward to playing golf. But his physical limitations prevented him from playing much golf and Bob could not sit still. He went to work for Liberty Oil and Gas in Odessa. The Pandemic caused another retirement, but he quickly returned to work part-time for Red Hawk, a part of Amazon. He was still working for Red Hawk when he passed.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents.
