    Sending our love to all of Bob’s family. Bob had a very special way of smiling and connecting with people. He was incredibly optimistic and a joy to be around. He loved his girls with all his heart. Hoping the love from friends and family provides the support Bob’s family needs at tnis time.

    I am so sorry to see that bob has passed. He was so special to us. The best neighbour you could ever have. Best memory from my childhood was waiting on the front porch on a hot summer day. Every day about 4:00, bob comes home and asks us if we want to go swimming in his pool. I am so lucky to have known him and have those wonderful memories.
