He retired in 2009 from Ford, Bacon and Davis where he worked as a Piping Designer. Bob was an avid fisherman and loved angling with friends and family. He always made each fishing trip an adventure with his wit and humor. It was on these fishing trips that he conjured up many of the memorable nicknames for his friends and family. His other passion was his love for old-time string band music. An accomplished musician on guitar, banjo and fiddle. His skills allowed him to build a beautiful banjo. He had weekly music sessions with friends, keeping the music alive.

Mourot; two daughters, Andrea Tilley and her husband Wendell of Nashville, TN, and Rachel Bourgeois and her husband Andrew of Baton Rouge, LA; one brother, Philip Mourot and his wife Nikki; four grandchildren, Rook, Neva, and Floan Tilley and Brody Bourgeois; and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
