Bob was born on February 1, 1945 to Bob and Anne Signom in Dayton, Ohio. A true Daytonian, Bob attended Colonel White High School, Miami University, Washington University, and The Ohio State University, where he received his Juris Doctorate. Bob practiced law as Associate General Counsel at NCR, as well as Smith and Schnacke; Young, Pryor, Lynn and Jerardi; and Green and Green. In 1974, Bob argued a case on behalf of NCR before the Supreme Court of the United States. In 1992, Bob founded The Citizens’ Motorcar Company, America’s Packard Museum, on Ludlow Street.
