Robert Allen McDonald was born October 8, 1953 in Detroit, Michigan to Arthur and Vera McDonald. He entered the kingdom of Heaven and joined his parents passing away October 5, 2017.
After earning a degree in heating and cooling from community college, Bob began work in the mailroom of USF&G Insurance. He later worked his way up in the company to become an insurance underwriter. He also met the love of his life, Charlotte while working there.

Bob was well known for his “McDonald” sense of humor, which included many corny puns and one liners. He was passionate about fishing and enjoyed looking through catalogs and going to stores to see all the newest lures. Bob also loved baseball, hockey, and football. He enjoyed listening to The Beatles, and any classic rock, and shared those hobbies with his children.
Bob was a loving and devoted husband to Charlotte for 38 years. They were parents to three children and two grandchildren, who were their pride and joy. Bob never missed a single soccer game, ballet recital, or marching band parade.

Robert is survived by his children Erin McDonald, Ashley (Shaun Lams) McDonald, and Garrett McDonald, and her grandchildren Kaylee Lams, and Michael Lams. His is the brother of Jim (Joanne) McDonald, Mike (Rosemary) McDonald, and Mark (the late Lynne) McDonald.
