Bob was born on April 15, 1934, in Kellogg, IA, a son to Albert and Minny (Redding) Henning. Bob was raised in the Newton, IA area where he would eventually meet the love of his life, Helen Lily Tutor.  The couple was united in marriage on March 14, 1953, and have been blessed with 67 wonderful years together and 5 children.

    Auntie Helen ,Kathy Sue, Connie and Keri Jo :
    I have so many fond memories of growing up with Uncle Bob. Fishing trips ,coon hunting and so many family reunions. I always loved the way he called my dad “Slim ” . I tell “Uncle Bob ” stories in the clinic where I work all the time . I am sure he would appreciate my embellishments for effect . He was a character to say the least . Just thinking of him brings a smile to my face . Prayers to you all !
