Bob was born on December 8, 1930 in York, ON and came to Calgary in 1963 where he lived out his life. Bob had a welcoming heart for everybody he came in contact with. His door was always open and he had a truly wonderful gift and unique ability to selflessly support people. Bob will be remembered for his love of life, animals and his caring and giving attitude towards anybody who needed a hand. He loved spending time with friends and family, especially the grand-kids.
Bob will be sadly missed by his step-daughter, Melodie (Brian) McBeath and her family. He is survived by two sons, Brian (Fran) Burroughs and Richard Burroughs and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.
