Born in Argyle, MO, to parents Frank & Katie Wieberg, Bob was one of 15 children.

After returning from the war, Bob and Sarah settled in St. Louis, where they raised their family. Bob spent most of his career working at Keuffel & Esser, a drafting instrument and supplies company. After retiring, they moved to Springfield, IL.
