Robert “Bob” “Peany” Ozmun, age 70 of Faribault, MN passed away on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at his home following an extended illness surrounded by his family.
Robert LeRoy, the son of Henry and Olive (Hendrickson) Ozmun was born on October 26, 1950 in Northfield, MN. He attended Faribault High School and later attended Dunwoody College for construction management. On March 2, 1973 he was united in marriage to Teresa Thraen. Bob began his construction career with Healy Construction and later was one of the first employees of Met Con Construction and had a 42-year career with them. Family was especially important to Bob and he so enjoyed spending time with his children and especially enjoyed time with his grandchildren and watching their activities. He was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. Met Con was a big part of his life and Bob considered them all part of his extended family. Bob and Teresa enjoyed road trips to Las Vegas and did several with Tom and Sandy McDonough who were close friends of theirs. Bob also enjoyed playing scratch offs, working in his yard and just being outdoors.
A special thank you to all four of my children from the bottom of my heart for leaving their families, spending the last two weeks here to help me take care of their father.
