Bob, the son of Jack and Eula Mae Dantzler, was born on May 24, 1932 in High Point, North Carolina. He graduated from the University of North Carolina where he was a member of the Chi Psi Fraternity and ROTC. Following graduation, he joined the United States Air Force where he was a pilot flying B47s. He was active and flew in many international missions from 1955-1958. He continued to serve in the military reserves until honorably discharged in 1970. While serving his country, he was stationed in Altus, Oklahoma where he met and married Sally Jane Davis. They wed April 7, 1958. They opened the first Dairy Queen in Altus which was on Broadway. They also had the first putt-putt directly behind the Dairy Queen which was a favorite spot for many. They eventually sold the Dairy Queen to open a new business. He and Sally owned and operated the only cotton mote gin in Altus until a cotton fire on Nov. 16, 1988 destroyed the business. After this historic fire, they rebuilt this business and continued to work together until Sally passed away in 2006. Bob and Sally have two daughters, Nancy Anne of Altus and Alice Jane of Norman. After Sally lost a battle with cancer, Bob married Betty Humble Sharpe, June 16, 2007 in Mooresville, North Carolina. Bob and Betty had known each other since they were in high school in Asheboro, North Carolina. Bob was a deacon and lifelong member of the First Presbyterian Church in Altus where he was actively involved in the upkeep and running of the church. In his later years, Bob had the job of ringing the church bells every Sunday morning, which called the service to begin. While in the Air Force he was a member of the Officer's Club, where he held office and the Air Force Association after being discharged. He was also a member of the Elks Club. Bob was an avid golfer; he taught himself to play while in the Air Force. He traveled and played on many famous courses around the U.S.
