    I wish you all great strength for the new and challenging journey you are on. I worked with Bob at Van Horne and have very fond memories of his friendliness, thoughtfulness and genuine caring. It was a great honour to work with him and I will cherish his kindness always. I share this proverb “If the eyes had no tears, the soul would have no rainbow.”

  2. Robert (Bob) Tuff :

    I was shocked to see Bob’s picture in the paper. His smiling face brought back many great memories of times spent together at school, at celebrations, reunions and dinners with friends and students in China town. Bob was a man of integrity who treated everyone with dignity and worth. He was sincere and always cared about others before himself. I don’t think there was an angry bone in his body. I am sure that you will miss him terribly. My thoughts and best wishes go out to you at this time. Respectfully sent, Bob

    With much sadness, I read of Bob’s passing. All who knew and worked with Bob admired his unfailing work ethic, his genuine caring for others, his sense of humour. He was a leader in the CBE Work Experience program. Bob always went the “extra mile”.

    My sincere sympathy to Veronica, PJ, David and families. Family was his first priority, and during these sad days, may your many memories be a comfort to each of you.

    On behalf of many of Bob’s Van Horne colleagues, we send condolences to his family. He was greatly respected and appreciated by all staff members.
