    So sorry to read of Bob’s death last Wednesday. Our thoughts, prayers and condolences are with Bev and extended family at this time. First met Bob in 1971 at BMO Main Branch, Calgary, where I was very much a “rookie” in the Bank. We were lucky to have Bob and Bev as good neighbours when we lived on Mapleton Drive (1980 – 1986). His sense of humour was priceless and many times the two of us would be the only fellows, at the monthly lunches after retirement, who would appreciate his “Scottish” jokes. I’ll miss you dear friend. God be with you Bev in your time of sorrow.

    Bob was a work colleague at BMO and Robin and I had dealings with him over the years. He had a strong work ethic and integrity in what he did, which was capped off by his wonderful sense of humor. He will be missed. Our condolences to Bev.
