He was a graduate of Reitz High School and DePauw University where he was a Rector Scholar and a member of Alpha Tau Omega fraternity. While there, he met the love of his life, Joyce (Milnar) Nunn and enjoyed 66 happy years together. Bob served in the Army in Korea returning home to join the family business, Nunn Milling Company. Over the years, Bob, with his late brother Alan, took the business to the international market under the name Midwestern Pet Foods. Locally, Nunn Better remained a staple of many Ohio Valley residents, and “The Pet Food Center” became the place to buy pet foods and supplies. He loved the Lord and was a member of Old North United Methodist Church, then Northside Congregational Church both in Evansville. He was a member of the North American Millers’ Association and long-time member of the Northside Optimist Club. After retiring to Ft. Myers Beach, FL, Bob became a member of The Chapel by the Sea.

His golf buddies were life time friends who shared many happy memories with Bob.
