Born on February 23, 1932 at Carroll, Iowa, Robert was the son of Jelste “J.J” and Marie “Feld” Sapp. On April 23, 1958 he was united in marriage to Dorothy Wegman at St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Carroll. Following their marriage the couple made their home in Carroll. At a young age Bob was offered to go work for John Anderson who owned and operated Anderson’s Shoes in downtown Carroll. He learned the shoe trade from John and his family and later opened his own business when he purchased Kramer Shoes in March of 1962. From the start it was a family business. Bob’s wife Dorothy assisted with the bookkeeping at Bob’s Shoe Repair and his mother Marie also assisted with repairs, sewing and waiting on customers. Bob later turned the business to his son Mike who worked alongside him. Bob loved golfing, bowling, tending to his garden, and always took great pride in his well-manicured lawn. He enjoyed various types of woodworking and for several years assisted with building homes for Habitat for Humanity. Bob was a member of St. Lawrence Church in Carroll. Bob is survived by his children: Marie (Larry) Gerding of Omaha, NE, Mike (Connie) Sapp of Carroll, Trish (Robert) Burt of Ringsted, and Steve (Rosie) Sapp of Carroll; nine grandchildren: Chelsey Sapp, Amanda Burt, Josh Sapp, Chris Burt, Miranda Gerding, Jacob Burt, Brandy Fay, Jennifer Fay, and Adam Fay; his great-grandson, Skyler Goetzinger; his siblings: Janet Parent of Chicago, IL, Mary Steimer of Omaha, Judy Testroet of Carroll, and Linda (Jerry) Schaffer of Ft.
