Bob loved camping, gardening, raising chickens and pigeons, fishing, hunting, golf and skiing.  He was very generous with his stained glass creations such as lamps, ornaments and designs making sure he made something for everyone.  He also had a small saw hammering/filing business where he met many friends. 

Bob and Jan travelled by truck and camper to many lovely spots on Vancouver Island and across Canada.  They also enjoyed travel to Mexico, Norway, Costa Rica, Florida and Hawaii. 

Bob will be remembered fondly for his quick wit and comedic one liners such as: “I’ll see you on the first….first chance I get”.
