Robert 'Bob' Siegfried

Robert “Bob” Siegfried

This book — “Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Do” by Dr. Robert H. Schuller — graced the coffee table of the Siegfried household for many years. If Robert “Bob” Siegfried had been a book title, this was it.

This book, which was the mantra for his life, was one that helped many readers overcome struggles in their lives. This mantra helped Bob overcome many of his own life struggles — coming out stronger in the end. That is how he is remembered by his family — a tough man who bravely and courageously fought the good fight until the very end.
