Volunteer SpotlightBob, and his wife Marvel, moved to Urbandale just over 6 years ago.
They moved here from the Monroe area, where Bob tells us he attended a one-room school house through the 8th grade, before going on to graduate from Monroe Community School and Iowa State University.
Bob’s 40 year career as a writer included 18 years with the Wallaces Farmer magazine and 23 years as a freelance writer.
His topics were mostly financial – income tax, estate planning and farm management.
