    Our condolences to Uncle Bob’s family. He was a wonderful kind man with a great sense of humour, whose life centered around the love and pride he had for his family. He left a legacy of great memories that all who knew him will cherish. Auntie Mem, you were the light of his life and he was always so proud and happy that you were his war bride.

    Condolences to Barb, Dianne and Joan on the loss of your father and husband. Bob always had a smile and a joke for us “young turkeys” who lived down the lane – we will remember him fondly.
