Bob was born July 22, 1938 to Harold and Helen (Gammell) Stevens at his grandparents’ home near Heppner. He came home to Hardman at haying time and spent the resto of his life on that windy ridge, until moving to Willow Creek Terrace in November of 2022.

Bob was needed at home and came back to farm with his parents. On June 4, 1961 he married Judy Brinda at Heppner. The couple had two children, daughter Jojean and son John. Bob farmed until 1986, then worked for Miller Welding and Treo Ranches.
