Robert Scott Cavegn was born on July 12, 1965 in St. Paul, Minnesota to the late Roger and Judy (Pedlar) Cavegn. He was united in marriage to Barbara Skroch on January 2, 1998 in Upsala. The couple made their home in rural Upsala. Bob worked as a carpenter for over 35 years. He loved music, playing his guitar and was passionate about riding his motorcycle. Bob was a handy man of all trades, there was nothing he could not fix or repair, he was a go to guy to have your items fixed. Bob will be remembered for his wonderful sense of humor, jokes, pranks and laughter that he brought to his family and friends.
