Bob was born in Jamestown on August 1, 1953, to Adolph and Hulda Guthmiller. As a child, Bob lived in Pettibone until 1960 when the Guthmiller family moved to Bismarck.

As a young man, Bob had numerous jobs until he started working for the Bismarck Public Works – Street Department. After working with the Street Dept. for 25 years, Bob retired. During the summers, he went to work for Parks and Recreation.
