He had fond memories of living in Ohio and was a lifelong Ohio State Football and Basketball fan.

Bob studied at Grace College and began his career working in a Christian bookstore.  He eventually owned his own automotive parts store and then transitioned to consulting as an Oracle database administrator where he supported several major corporations in Indiana. Bob always had a servant’s heart living out his faith in the Gospel by serving whether it be at a youth group camp with his kids, in a choir, cooking food at a men’s breakfast, or burgers for his RC Plane Club.

Recently Bob volunteered at Shepherd Community Center and with Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic in Indianapolis. Bob was always a part of his church, most recently attending both Redeemer Presbyterian Church with his daughter and Horizon Christian Fellowship with friends.

Bob is survived by his children Erin Hall and Matthew Braham (Jessica) and his sister Joyce Royer, as well as his grandchildren, Jacqueline Hall and Liam, Molly and Emeline Braham. His nephews and nieces Russ (Judy), Andrew (Melody), Monica, and Bryan (Christy) Royer and Dawn Smith (Jeremy), Denise McComas (Clay), and Chad (Becca) Braham. Bob was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Chet Braham and David Braham.
