    I am saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. Bob was a great friend, mentor and client of mine who was instrumental in getting me started in business. His positive demeanour and infectious smile were his trademarks and he was highly respected by all in the business community who knew him. Bob went out of his way to introduce me to people and he was alway available for a word of encouragement. I am glad I was able to connect at Cec Papke’s funeral with Bob and have a good visit. I will certainly miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with Bob’s family.

  15. I was saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. He was a great friend and mentor to me early in my career and though we have not connected for some time, Bob frequently comes to mind as I reflect on people who have been very important in my life.

    I appreciated Bob’s great joy in being with people and connecting people who would gain benefit from knowing each other. Bob was always someone that you could count on to be there when you needed him and to always have those right words to bring things back into perspective.

    Rosemary and I offer sincere condolences to the family on your loss. The rich memories of this fine man will hopefully provide some consolation in this very difficult time.

    I was saddened to read of Bob’s passing.
    I am a distant relative from California. Bob and my father, Bud Lester were first cousins. I would very much like to get in touch with Bob’s brother, Bill. If anyone reading this could possibly either give me info on Bill or give my e-mail address to Bill, I would very much appreciate it.
    Thanks.

    I’m am so sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I worked at the hair salon where he was a regular client for many years. I have since moved on into palliative medicine and was thinking of Bob recently, yet saddened to discover he had passed.
    He was such a kind, wise, true gentleman. We shared many conversations and I will always remember him with a great fondness.

    My deepest sympathies to Bob’s family.
