Bob was born on September 10, 1943 in Madison, the son of Harvey Rindfliesch, Harriet and Stan Midthun. He graduated from Monona Grove High School in 1961. Bob worked at the bowling alley in his teen years. Bob bowled many nights a week in men’s leagues while attending high school. Bob was offered the opportunity to become a member of the Professional Bowling Association and go on tour while in high school, but his mother denied permission for him to join. After high school, Bob continued to bowl around five nights a week for many years in Madison and surrounding communities. Bob bowled several 300 games, along with 800 series. Bob met his wife, Janis in high school as they were high school sweethearts. Bob and Janis were married June, 1963.

In the mid 1970s, Bob and Janis, along with their son, Don moved to Waushara County, the Wautoma-Coloma area. Bob started his own drywall business in that area for nearly 25 years before retiring.
