He was the son of James and Bertha Studeny of Shaker Heights.

He then moved to Ashland in 1956 with his wife of 60 years, Dorothy (née Koogle) Studeny, when they purchased Overynder Florist, which became Ashland Florist. They ran the florist business successfully for 38 years. Bob was involved in many civic organizations, including Rotary and the library board.
