Cowboy Bob passed away in his home on February 5, 2019 after a courageous battle against cancer. He was preceded in death by his parents Thomas and Carol Hummel and his grandmother Alice Church. He is survived by his wife of 32 years JoAnn (Jojo) Hummel, son Ian (Dianne) Hummel, step sons Matthew (Virginya) McQuade, Adam McQuade, grandchildren Tyler, Trevor, Joey, James and Arah McQuade, sister Susan (Mark) Ridley, sisters-in-law Vicki (John) Dillon, Paula (Matt) Davis-Scurlock, brother-in-law Tom (Jeannie) Castorano, many nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends. He dearly loved his family and friends. Bob was raised in Grove City, Ohio and graduated in 1965 from Grove City High School. He attended Ohio University and graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design. Two weeks after graduation Bob began his 30 year career at The Ohio State University. He was on staff as a designer and taught graphic design to Medical Illustration and Communication Students for 18 of those 30 years. Bob was also a talented portrait artist, creating hundreds of renderings of people, pets and caricatures over his lifetime. As talented as Bob was in the field of art, he was equally accomplished in music. Bob began singing and entertaining in his teens and rose to the top with his band Rainbow Canyon's hit Franklin County Woman, recorded in 1977. They entertained at many central Ohio venues for 18 years. For the last 20 years Bob and his wife Jojo had continued entertaining in the Columbus area as well as their second home in Florida. He was an avid sportsman and excelled at Kung Fu and the martial arts. Bob loved the outdoors, wildlife, camping and hunting. He enjoyed the mountains, the beach and everything in between. Bob had a great sense of humor and a zest for life! The world will be a little less vibrant without him, but oh won't heaven be fun.

Service will be Saturday, February 9, 2019 at St. Johns Evangelical Lutheran Church, 3220 Columbus Street, Grove City, Ohio 43123 at 10:30am.

In lieu of flowers, please contribute to the charity of your choice in Bob's memory.
