Bob and his wife Kendra McCraight are both active members of the community, both having grown up with families deeply involved in their hometown of Romulus. As proud father of Garret and Lauren McCraight, and proud Papa of Declan and Dahlia, Bob lives a life of service to others as an example for his children and grandchildren. The McCraight family has called Romulus home for generations and have served the community in many ways; through church (St. Aloysius) and the schools. They were involved in the initial programs of the Romulus Progressive Club. Bob, like his uncle, also volunteered as a paid-on-call firefighter/EMT from 1993 to 1998 and helped with the Goodfellows program.
Bob has been instrumental in bringing several events to Romulus that both benefit residents and draw visitors. Some of these events assisted Romulus’ senior citizens, residents in a financial or health crisis, and our city’s youth. In fact, he is a former Romulus Little League manager and team sponsor. In 2018, Bob received the Veterans of Foreign War Distinguished Service Award and in 2019, Bob was recognized as Romulus Chamber of Commerce 34th Person of the Year.
A personal passion for Bob is our military and support of those who have served our Great Country. Bob is dedicated to causes that honor and provide essential needs for United States Military Veterans. He is the Co-Founder of Romulus Veterans Outreach Coalition, which focuses on service projects for resident veterans. Past projects include repairs to homes, yard restoration and other enhancement projects. He has organized annual clothing, blanket, and toiletry drives for homeless Veterans. Bob is co-Founder of Romulus Roamin’ Chrome annual classic car and motorcycle road rally. This fun event supports local businesses while raising funds to assist veterans in need. Romulus Wreaths Across America is yet another one of the national events that Bob helped bring to Romulus, with a purpose to remember our US veterans buried in our cemetery and to teach our children about honoring our heroes. It helps catalog our veterans to a definitive list, which grows every year as we build awareness, and raise thousands of dollars to support our local veterans. The popular Romulus Curling Royale; an annual winter curling event is yet another event Bob enjoys and is organizing every year as a Win-Win event that supports various veteran and youth charities while providing fun and entertainment for the community.
