Bob was born February 13, 1951 in Powell to Thomas and Darlene (Cline) Nelson.  Thomas passed away in 1954 when Bob was just 3 years old.  Later that year Darlene married Harold H. Morrison of Cody and Harold adopted Bob and older sister Rebecca.  The family resided in Powell and Bob soon became a big brother to Rodney and Roland.
He attended school in Powell and graduated from Powell High School in 1969.  He loved playing football and basketball for the Panthers and was also a member of the 1970 Northwest College Trapper basketball team.  He joined the Navy in 1972 and served overseas as a Sea Bee until his discharge in 1976. 
Upon returning to Powell, Bob entered the construction trade working alongside friends building homes in the Cody area. Spending much of his time outdoors, he enjoyed camping and pack trips with friends and family. 
Bob married Amy Sagrilla of Powell on June 7, 1981 and they soon welcomed their daughter Mandy.  Bob was a proud and deeply devoted father.
Bob married Norma Alvarez Knapp of Cody on November 9, 1996 and the couple happily made their home together in Ralston.
Bob was an avid reader with a special interest in military history.  He enjoyed learning of family history at family gatherings through the storytellers of his elder generations.  Bob was proud and honored to be a grandfather and delighted in the time he spent with his five grandsons.  He took special pride in flower gardening and enjoyed spending quiet time at home with his wife Norma.
