Robert was born and raised in Oakland, California, the son of Ernst Gelling and Naomi Bowman. When Naomi remarried, he and his three brothers were adopted by Fred Blake. He lived most of his adult life in Midland, Texas. After his retirement in April 2018, he moved to San Angelo to be near his family.

Bob served in the Air Force from 1957 to 1961, after serving in the National Guard for 16 months. Bob then settled with his young family, in Midland where he was an architectural draftsman, a well respected citizen and a beloved family man.
