Bob met the love of his life, Betty Spradlin, on the steps of the Broadway Baptist Church in Kansas City and they were married in 1954. While working on his master's at KCU, Bob was recruited by Arthur Young in Kansas City, Missouri. Bob joined Arthur Young in 1955, transferred to Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1961, and retired in 1992 as a partner with Ernst and Young after a 37-year career in Auditing. He enjoyed his work with several principal clients including Walmart, The Williams Companies, and Quik Trip. Bob served on numerous committees and held many leadership positions in several organizations. He served as President of the Oklahoma Society of Certified Public Accountants and as a Board Member of the Oklahoma Accountancy Board. He was honored to receive "The 1990 Public Service Award" from The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants given to "outstanding individuals who have consistently volunteered their professional and personal time to improve the quality of life in their communities. Through selfless actions, they truly embody the qualities of integrity and commitment inherent to the profession of accountancy".

It was located near Sardis Lake and the Talimena Scenic Drive in the heart of the Kiamichi Mountains in southeastern Oklahoma. They had many adventures at the Inn which had a restaurant, guest rooms, and guest cottages. The Kiamichi Mountains were a great attraction for guests who liked to ride horses and 4-wheelers.
