    In addition to his parents, he is also survived by his wife Nancy, nee Kollmann, Innes of Damiansville, whom he married May 22, 1999 at St. Damian Catholic Church in Damiansville; his children, Meredith and Reid Innes; siblings, Bill Innes of Damiansville and Cindy (Joe) Voss of Belleville; his mother-in-law, Teresa, nee Thole, Kollmann of Trenton; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Mike (Suzi) Kollmann of Highland, Mark (Katie) Kollmann of Trenton, Linda “Whitey” (Ken “Bender”) Wobbe of Damiansville, Chuck Kollmann of Trenton, and Jeff (Lori) Kollmann of Trenton; nephews and nieces, Braden, Dylan, and Drew Voss, Ben and Willa Kollmann, Brandon and Lucas Wobbe, and Justin, Mitchell, Bailey, and Jenna Kollmann; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.


    He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Frank and Minnie, nee Fuehne, Heimann, and George and Marion, nee Heussner, Innes; his father-in-law, Norman Kollmann; and cousins, Kim Heimann and Patty Bray-Heimann.


    Bob was a 1988 graduate of Mater Dei High School in Breese and a 1992 graduate of the University of Illinois in Champaign with a degree in Metallurgical Engineering. He began his career working in Chicago from 1993-1997 and finished his career in St. Louis.
