Robert “Bob” McCann, age 64, of Milton, passed away at his home on Monday, July 29, 2019, surrounded by his loving family after a courageous battle with cancer. Bob was born on March 28, 1955, to Robert and June (Schumacher) McCann in Janesville, Wisconsin. He graduated from Milton High School in 1973 and furthered his education by attending UW-Rock County College. He married Sandra Hill on November 1, 1980, in Milton.
Bob lived in Milton all of his life where he was a route driver for Archway. He then owned McCann’s Parkview Grocery in Milton, and then went to work for CB&K Supply in Janesville. In the past 10 years, he worked for Pertzborn Plumbing in Madison. Bob enjoyed going for rides, poker, playing cards, fishing, golfing and playing softball. He was a coach, umpire and referee for all sports. He was a huge supporter of the Badgers, Packers, Brewers and Milton athletics. He was a creature of habit, who was famous for his one-liners. He was a kind, nurturing and caring man, who was a friend to all. Bob was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, neighbor and friend. He was one of the best and will be dearly missed.
