Bob Whitworth grew up in a small town in the central valley of California. Brought up in a Christian home, he enjoyed a lot of freedom as long as he adhered to a few ground rules set down by his father. The influence of his father’s faith while growing up helped him know where to look for hard-to-find answers in tough times while serving as a combat soldier in Vietnam.

Bob retired from the heavy construction industry after 30 years. A private pilot for 26 years, he enjoys being in the outdoors, having adventures, traveling with his wife and spending time with his children and grandchildren.

A volunteer mentor to returning Global War on Terror (GWOT) veterans at his local Vet Center, Bob loves to tell stories and speaks occasionally to school and church groups. He lives in Concord, California with his wife Beth.
