  • I knew Bob through my parents. The pink cottage at the lake next to my uncle's was a picture perfect place for fun weekends of volleyball and such. Bob always asked about my older brother Garry whenever I saw him at Windsor Plywood as he knew he was ill. He always said "say hello to your mom" and I knew he cared so much about family. He had a way of taking me back to a time I did not know but that made him smile and laugh. Bob, every time I met you at the shop was a time I will remember for a very long time. Rest peacefully my friend and say hello to all our families and friends. Peace

  • I was very sorry to hear of the loss of Bob; as a former student I've fond memories of a teacher that cared & loved to share a joke with his students. The Schoettle cousins were regarded with respect. Deepest condolences to the family.
