Bob was born on February 10, 1968 in Fort Atkinson, WI the son of Charles and Sherry (Reinke) Bigelow. He grew up in the Whitewater area and after his schooling, he worked on his dad’s farm at the beginning of his working career and would work in the farming industry for the majority of his career. Bob also worked in construction as a roofer and few other capacities. He was very skilled with his hands and was the type of person who could make or fix just about anything. Bob was a very helpful person and was willing to help a friend, neighbor or complete stranger in need. He truly would give the shirt of his back to anyone. Bob was known as “Bigzy” or “Uncle Bob” to his friends and family. For leisure, he loved being outside in God’s creation. He had a great appreciation for animals and their beauty and he loved hunting or anything else outside. He had a beloved pet Golden Retriever, Wally who went everywhere with him and the two were best of friends. Bob also enjoyed watching classic Westerns such as Bonanza or Gun Smoke. He was blessed with a son, Nicholas and he loved him very much. Bob was a good man and he will be deeply missed by his friends and family.

He is survived by: his son, Nicholas (Brittany) Osgood of Whitewater; his two grandsons, Duncan and Connor Osgood; his loving sister, Brenda Brown of Cambridge; and his niece and nephews, Danielle (Ryan) Larson of Menomonee Falls, Josh (Crystal) Brown of Fort Atkinson, Nathan (Brittany) Lathrop of Cambridge, Robert Lathrop of Whitewater, and Andrew Lathrop of Whitewater; he is also survived by his faithful canine companion, Wally.
