    Have lost most of the aunts and uncles, now starting on the cousins…so very, very sad. I remember Bob quite well from when we would visit when I was a little girl. Of course life changes and gets busy…but I never forgot him. My thoughts and prayers are with all his family. Hugs <3

    Goodbye Uncle Bob. I may have been your step great-niece …. but to me you were always just family, just Uncle Bob. And some of my best childhood/teenage memories were at the trailer with you & Aunt Darlene. I wish you had the chance to meet baby Charlee, you would have loved her so much. – Shelby xoxo

    Our deepest condolences to Darlene and the family. Bob had a very warm personality and a sense of humour that would fill the room with laughter no matter what the topic. We all loved Bob.

    Bobby I have a lot of happy memories with our visits to Newmarket to see Aunt Flo, Uncle Frank, you, Gord, Brenda, Dar and Karen. It was always a warm and happy home and we always had fun. I even remember our times in the first home in Newmarket near the railway, the organ, piano and juke box. These memories will live on forever and hopefully we will meet again in the hereafter.

    Uncle Bob may you Rest In Peace. My deepest condolences go out to Dar, Scott and Steve. As we all have had the privilege of knowing Bobby I am sure we could all agree he brought smiles to everyone he was around. He carried joy, love and wore his heart on his sleeve. As we stand strong saying our goodbyes to a wonderful man we will never forget the impact he had on all of us. May our memories carry on and keep him forever in our hearts. Rest In Peace uncle Bob. I promise, you will never be forgotten.

    Sending love and condolences to Darlene, Scott, Steven and the rest of the family. We always enjoyed visits when we were in Ontario and all the stories Bob would tell about the crazy things he did in his youth. There are many family memories that include Bob – from fishing at Ashby Lake to grabbing one of Doris’s too hot butter tarts, to him and Darlene at the house to play cards with Allen and Doris. Now Bob and Allen can continue playing cards. Bob, you are a legend and you will never be forgotten.
    Dave, Sandra and family❤️💐
