He is also an avid supporter of Ohio’s Only Outdoor Passion Play and often hands out brochures throughout the season and half-price tickets. He was raised in Cambridge, Ohio, and graduated from Cambridge High School. Mr. Applegate was actively involved in coaching softball, and is legendary with his role in helping start the Road Runners, a local softball program that has had major success for numerous years. Bob has been married to Christy (White) Applegate for thirty-six years “so far, and for as long as she’ll have him.” Their daughters are Alyssa and Aarika. Bob and Christy have four grandchildren – Bexlee, Wylee, Dayzee and Knox. He says he has “a wonderful wife, wonderful children and grandchildren, and a great life.”
