Bob Stoddart

Bob Stoddart - Bio Picture

I’m Robert Stoddart AKA Bob.  I’m the youngest son of Roy and Karen (Stewart) Stoddart.  I grew up on a family farm in Monteview.  In 2002, I graduated from WJHS.   From there, I attended the College of Southern Idaho for two years and graduated with a degree in horticulture.  I then continued my education at the University of Idaho.   In 2006, I received a bachelor’s degree in plant science.

Later that year, I married my wife, Lacey.  Together we have two children, Allie and Aiden.

In 2016, I started driving a truck for 2J Hay, hauling ag products.  Two years later, I purchased my own truck and trailers and became an owner/operator for Stoddart Transportation.  I am currently farming in Monteview and operating my trucking business.

I look forward to serving this community as a board member of the Centennial Community Coopertive.
