Oral History: Interview with Bob Walling

Bob Walling was born in 1945 in Estill County where he resided until he turned eighteen. When he turned eighteen he moved to Lexington and soon joined the Army. After returning from an inactive service in the Army Bob opened an Italian restaurant, but realized that restaurant business was not for him. He began working for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet as an engineer and is still an engineer to this day. Bob had only one child, a daughter named Lisa which in turn gave him two grandchildren. He remarried and gained a step daughter and another grandchild. Bob spends his free time doing outdoor activities and being in the company of friends.
