Resident Spotlight: Bob Wartman

Copy/Image 3a

 

Bob Wartman was born in Ashland, Wisconsin on October 31, 1961.  He has three brothers and one sister.  His oldest brother Mike still lives in Ashland practicing law.  The second oldest is Tim who works in Chicago for Allegiant Credit Union.  Bob, who is the middle child, had many jobs. Back in high school he started working at Kentucky Fried Chicken. After getting a 2 year associates degree from UW Superior in business, he moved to Minneapolis and later the Chicago area. He worked as a manager for KFC, SNAP on Tools, and as a security guard.  Eventually Bob settled in Madison, Wisconsin at the Wisconsin State Lottery.  He was married for 15 years and has a son named Brett. The lottery was the most interesting job for Bob

as he enjoyed traveling throughout the Wisconsin area. Later he took a job with the Wisconsin Department of Revenue where he helped people get out of debt and solved many of their financial problems.  His younger brother John lives in Milwaukee, WI. Bob also lived in Milwaukee for about 2 years.  His youngest sibling is Connie.  She lives in Rockford and is a teacher at the new Cherry Valley School. Growing up in a big family Bob loved all sports such as skiing, boating, golfing, football, wrestling, baseball, swimming, and bowling.  Bob was known for being one of the strongest on the track team as he could throw the shot put disc farther than anyone in the Ashland area.  He also was one of the better golfers around.  Bob is someone who brings a smile to all our faces here at Bickford Senior Living.
