We lived down the street from Bob. I also worked with him at Canadian Tire. Both my husband and I were very fond of him, and whenever we seen him outside, we would always have a little chat. SobSorry for your family’s loss. May Bob rest in peace.
On behalf of myself and the entire Westfield Heritage Village family, we are very sad to lose such a wonderful friend and talented historic interpreter. Bob was always so kind, generous and supportive of all things Westfield.
Our condolence to Helen and I thank her for sharing Bob with us so many days when he came to the Village. Bob will be remembered forever with all the wonderful memories we have of him.
Sadly Bob's life is over. Fond Memories are with us. Bob was a special neighbour and friend who always smiled. Loved pets. He was very giving but not a receiver .Caring, Thoughtful, Helpful and dedicated to communication. Mother Nature was part of Bob's Life. Spring brought Robins and Bluebells to enjoy. He always fed the birds. Had pride in the flowers he planted in the front flower garden. Anyone walking down street was greeted with Bob's smile and stopped for a chat. He loved chatting. Bob was well liked and will always be missed.
Q: How did you meet Robert?
A: Greeted by Bob with a smile when I moved into my home across the street
We felt so fortunate to have Bob as our neighbour. He always had a smile, offered assistance and would let us know about good services and products.
I remember driving home from work in the miserable winter weather and dreading the amount of snow in my driveway only to arrive and find that my driveway had been cleared. I was so thankful but for many years I did not know it was Bob who had cleared the snow. He was a quiet hero.
Bob knew my husband collected Titanic memorabilia and one day we received a call that he had a gift for us and brought over a cross-stitched masterpiece of the Titanic at sea. Bob had taken two years to complete this work of art and we will treasure it forever. So touched by his kindness.
We will miss our chats in the garden and the sharing of our Christmas Village videos.
A good manner springs from a good heart, and fine manners are the outcome of unselfish kindness. Bob was the rare person who had the best heart but never asked for anything in return-a true selfless gentleman.
We feel that we are fortunate to have known Bob as our neighbour and our friend. Bob’s name will be often spoken within our home and he will be forever missed.
Our Deepest Sympathy for the loss of a “ True Friend” The walks at Glenhyrst as we solved the worlds problems, and the wonderful conversations will be dearly missed. Their won’t be one furry friend there that won’t be looking for Bob, as he knew each and every one of them by name. His kind, warm, and caring nature was matched perfectly with the smile that greeted each and everyone one of us.
We often kidded one another on our walks that we were getting ready to walk the Apalachian Trail, and we would then add to our bucket list White Water Rafting. Though neither of these ever transpired, the journey was absolutely divine.
He will be forever in our hearts.
