Bob grew up in Alberta, graduated from Garneau High School in Edmonton. He moved to BC where he worked in various areas for Marshall Wells, Victoria Marine Depot and finally Dept. of Highways. Bob had a love of old cars at a young age, which became contagious to other family members. Later he grew to love horses, which he had for 30 years. He was kind, gentle and very patient. He was proud of his sons and granddaughters, telling them stories and theories of his life. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Thank you for the tremendous help of the doctors and nurses on the 3rd floor. At Bob’s request there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
