Earlier in the day, he was working to de-energize power lines that were no longer in use.
“He didn't just work at the city of Edmond; he worked when he was at home," said Fish. "He was grandma's backyard labor. He would take the shirt off his back for anybody.”
Fish says her father was a man of many talents.
“He was always there," said Fish. "You could call him for anything.”
“I'm going miss hunting and fishing and camping and doing everything with him,” Wesley said.
“She was everything to him,” Fish said.
Fish says her father had a special bond with his granddaughter.
“Two weekends ago, they went on the boat, and he was so excited about that, because she was kind of scared of it, and he was so excited that she rode with him,” Fish said.
“It's just a big shock to me," said Wesley. "I can't believe that he's gone. He was there, next day he's gone. It's just gonna be really hard.”
Wesley and Jessica say they were told there was a camera on the train. They're hopeful it will give investigators a clear view of how their father was killed.
Bob Waterson will be laid to rest near his home in Wellston, Saturday morning.
