    Bob was a terrific guy and a great neighbor.Always finding the time for people he had a great many interesting stories to share. He and his faithful companion Toby were a fixture in our neighborhood and will be missed by many. Our condolences to his family for their loss.

    Bob was always chuckling at things – finding the humour in life and enjoying other people’s perspective on things. Engaging him in conversation revealed a sharp mind open to just about anything. His sudden passing leaves a hole in our lives. He is, and will be, missed. There is some consolation in that he passed so peacefully and is now with his beloved Eleanor. x

    It was a pleasure teaching with Bob in Thunder Bay. We spent many hours at each other’s homes for hot coffee or cold beer. Always full of humour, he was a pleasure to be around. He was always a good friend.

    I miss Bob and Toby; we shared some great walks on the local forest trails, and had good book discussions! But he is resting in peace and in Eleanor’s company.
