He was born Aug. 2, 1929 to Jens and Gena Lyng in Todd County, MN. Bob was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran faith and met Carone, the love of his life, at a church function. Together they served their church in many capacities throughout their lives. 

Bob earned a Bachelor of Science degree from St. Cloud State, taught high school for 6 years, and then worked in the insurance industry until his retirement in 1984, receiving his CLU in 1967.

Bob had a beautiful singing voice. He frequently soloed for his fellow parishioners and took every opportunity to sing with others. He also served as the backbone of the Christmas Family Band which featured four generations of Lyngs along with the instruments they played in high school, mostly long ago. They perform carols every Christmas Eve, to the best of their abilities, and his tuba parts kept them as on track as they were capable of being.

Bob loved nature and enjoyed a LOT of golf and other activities like deer hunting, hiking the Arizona mountains and digging for fishing worms with his grandchildren. He also loved a good crossword puzzle as long as it came with a La-Z-Boy recliner and some pretzels.

Bob is survived by Carone, his loving wife of 67 years, his children Mary (John), Bob Jr. (Julia), and Gwen (Ray), seven grandchildren (Kelsey, Shannon, Thor, Tova, Rosie, Jane and Kelly) and two great grandchildren (Wyn and Day).

He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, Herman, and sister, Thelma.
