Bob was raised on a farm near Glenavon, Saskatchewan. He joined the RCAF in 1941 and served his country as a Wireless Airgunner during the Second World War. Returning to Canada, he met Jean Kell and they were married in June of 1946. Stationed at bases throughout Canada, he retired from military life as a Warrant Officer at Comox in 1968. Bob worked for more than 12 years at the Courtenay Post Office before retiring permanently to pursue his hobbies of stained glass, gardening, woodworking and enjoying his family. In his earlier years Bob played fastball and always cheered for his beloved Cleveland Indians. He was a supportive fan for his girls’ sports and activities and a hardworking volunteer for the Comox Kiwanis Club and the St. George’s United Church.

Bob will be fondly remembered as a devoted and loyal family man. He was kind and thoughtful and always put the needs of others before his own.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Therapeutic Garden at St. Joseph’s General Hospital, ECU.
