Robert Roy Beine was born on May 27, 1948, in Charles City, the son of Floyd and Dorothy (Behling) Beine. Bob graduated from the Immaculate Conception Catholic School in Charles City in 1966. He received further education from Dunwoody (auto mechanic school) in Minneapolis, Minn., NIACC (liberal arts) in Mason City, and Hawkeye Institute of Technology in Waterloo, where he graduated with a degree in welding. After college, Bob was drafted into the Army on March 5, 1968, and served his country honorably and faithfully with a tour of duty in Vietnam for one year, and was honorably discharged on February 23, 1970.

During his working career, Bob was employed at B&L Shell in Charles City, Wachsman Brothers Construction in Waterloo, Hydrotile in Nashua, White Farm in Charles City, Timpte-Beall and Adolph Coors Co., and General Filter, in Golden, Colo., John Deere Co. in Waterloo, farming with his family, Hormel Co. in Austin, Minn., Standard Tool & Die in Chattanooga, Tenn., Hi-Way Equipment Co., Lattner Manufacturing Co. in Cedar Rapids and Iowa Contract Fabricators (McNeilus) in Riceville, where Bob retired on April 29, 2013.

Bob was united in marriage to Karen (Bunston) Page on Feb. 14, 1992, in Charles City. They enjoyed spending time with each other, which included many long drives and being outdoors.

Bob was an excellent certified welder and a jack of all trades. He was a great outdoorsman, which included hunting, fishing, camping, canoeing and gardening. Entertaining family and friends was a joy. His sense of humor and quick wit will be greatly missed by many.

Bob was also an active member of the Knights of Columbus and the American Legion and VFW Post 3914, all in Charles City.

Bob will always be remembered as one of the good guys, a wonderful husband, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and friend.

Bob loved his acreage, and for the past eight years he had been remodeling a 1910 farmhouse in Floyd. He started this project after he was hired at McNeilus, and it has been an adventure. That old farmhouse is the scene of family gatherings with Bob, wife Karen, stepson Jason, daughter-in-law Jodi, and three grandchildren, Jacob, Julia and Jenna.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Karen Beine of Floyd; stepson and daughter-in-law, Jason and Jodi Page; grandchildren, Jacob, Julia and Jenna Page, all of Charles City; his siblings, Marjorie (Thomas) Bartz, Victor (Deb) Beine, Linda (Jeff) Bergstrom, Ann (Paul) Skuster, Richard (Julie) Beine and Gena (Ron) Hemann, all of Charles City; father and mother-in-law, Lyle and Patricia Bunston of Humboldt; brothers and sisters-in-law, Lyle (Mila) Bunston Jr., Humboldt, Sheryl (Dan) Johnson, Julie (James) Zody, Blountville, Tenn., and Lisa (Chris) Gebel of Charles City; many nieces, nephews, and many other extended family members and friends.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents, Floyd and Dorothy Beine; his grandparents; and a nephew, Justin Gebel.
