2012 Citizen of the Year
Let it be known that it is an honor and a privilege to extend our sincerest praise and commendation to Robert Case in acknowledgement of his attaining the distinct honor of being named “2012 Citizen of the Year” for the Charter Township of Watertown.
Ability, commitment and integrity have been reflected in all of Bob’s endeavors as a volunteer in the community and he has shown consistent dedication to excellence throughout his many years of community service. He has made many sacrifices on behalf of the community, willingly and unselfishly and is always ready to shoulder a little extra responsibility or lend a helping hand in any circumstance.
Bob has been an effective member of the community through his willingness to volunteer his time to maintain and develop the township’s park and recreation areas. His tireless and thorough approach to each and every task has earned him the respect of public officials and residents of the community.
Bob maintains the old-fashioned values instilled by his parents, strong family ties and a tireless work ethic. He does whatever it takes to get the job done, no matter how long he has to work. He volunteers his time and effort wherever needed.
A retired businessman and longtime resident of Watertown Charter Township, he recently celebrated his forty-ninth wedding anniversary to his wife Janice. They have three children – Andy, Rob, Debbie, and six grandchildren.
Hardworking, and a person of firm beliefs and an unselfish commitment to helping others, Bob has enriched the community with the generous use of his time and effort and over the years has proven to be a great friend to this community and a concerned citizen. He merits our highest praise.
Therefore, in special tribute, this document is dedicated to commend and congratulate Robert Case as Watertown Charter Township’s “2012 Citizen of the Year.”
