Bob was born January 3, 1931 in Tuberose, SK to James and Emily (Rowlett) Green. The family moved to a farm in the RM of Dauphin in 1950. Bob was employed at Dennison Motors. While working here he received his journeymen heavy duty mechanics certificate. Meeting the love of his life, Iona MacDonald, they were married in Dauphin June 17, 1953. They mixed farmed on the MacDonald farm at Ashville. Bob started his plumbing career while continuing to farm. In 1975, Bob and Uncle Cholt built their new home in Gilbert Plains.

They can be seen at the Gilbert Plains Museum. In 2009, Bob and Iona moved to Kinsmen Villa in Dauphin. In 2012, because of health reasons, Bob moved to St. Paul's Care Home. He was a trustee for Vista School and served on the Gilbert Plains Hospital board.
