Bob passed away unexpectedly in his sleep on November 30, 2012 at St. Joseph’s General Hospital in Comox, BC.

Predeceased by wife, Doreen. Loving father to daughters Donna (Mike) and Brenda (Ralph). Proud grandfather to Kyle (Stephanie), Kurt and Brett and great grandfather to Alexia.

Born in Ontario on October 20, 1929, and raised on the family farm near Wilsonville, he joined the RCMP in 1948. After graduation from training in 1949, he was posted to and/or worked in Nova Scotia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
