Bob was born in Joliet, the son of the late Robert and Blanche (nee Covington) Magee, and was a lifelong resident. He graduated from Joliet West High School with the Class of 1976. Bob attended Arizona State University and received his Associates Degree in Electrical Engineering from Joliet Junior College. He was employed by ArcelorMittal as an electrical technician for the past 28 years and was a proud member of the ABATE of Will County Motorcycle Club.
