He is also survived by his brother, Ted (Danielle); sisters, Helen, and Marilyn (Dave); special sister-in-law, Toby (Vern); and close friends, Lyn and Jim. Bob was predeceased by his parents, Florence, Frank and Gladys.

Bob was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and friend, who always had time for everyone and never said a mean word. He loved going out for culinary delights with his wife, visiting his mountains with his children and grandchildren, his frequent trips to Victoria, and the Flames games family gatherings.

Bob was an active member of his church and had a deep conviction for his faith. He was also active with the Army and Navy, loved his coffee time at Westbourne, his darts, and most of all, his word searches.
