He was born September 6, 1944 in Wichita, the son of Arthur and Ruth Ellen Weiss Salsbury. Bob married Susan Peters DesMarteau on September 2, 2000.
Bob was a good father and grandfather who always took care of his children, teaching and guiding them through their lives. In addition to being a loving husband and father he enjoyed being outdoors playing golf, boating, and everything in between. His passion for cars was well known, he always had something in the garage being rebuilt or restored. Bob was gifted in many ways, but his greatest gift of all was his love and commitment to his family, friends and savior.
