Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
We are deeply saddened that another one of "our gang" has passed away. We went to Provencher High School together and kept in contact through the years. We saw Bob at Misericordia Hospital a couple of weeks before he passed away. Even then, he was enthusiastic and positive. He loved life and never complained. No words can describe how sorry we are that Bob is no longer with us. To the family he left behind, please accept our heartfelt sympathies. George and Terry. - Posted by: George Pelletier and Terry Stubbs (friend) on: May 18, 2019
