Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • I’m so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. For the past 11 years that I’ve lived right behind, I have to say June, Kim and rest of your family, I’ve never had or known such a wonderful neighbor. When I had a question, no matter how silly it seemed or when we talked about, where do we put all the snow, Bob always took the time to answer and never missed a wave or a hello. My heart goes out to the family, I will truly miss him. - Posted by: Pam Golembiski and family (Neighbor right behind ) on: Nov 30, 2019

  • So very sad to hear of Bob’s passing. I have so many wonderful memories that I will keep with me always. I will cherish the twinkle in his eyes, the mischievous grin, and the uproarious laugh he readily shared. I always felt we shared a special bond (which was bigger than our love of rum!). It seemed understood that in order to dish out the teasing you had to be able to take it. He was definitely and lovingly one of the best!! Love always, Donna - Posted by: Donna Fowler (Niece) on: Nov 20, 2019

  • I was so saddened to learn of Uncle Bob's passing. My dad had called to let me know and was so upset that he had been unable to visit with him while they were here in Winnipeg. I have so many great memories from when we were kids, especially the Christmas parties. His sense of humour, and the strong bond that he had with my dad really made his being part of our lives, as part of our family, very special. My sincerest condolences to the entire family and all who loved him. - Posted by: Shandi Strong (God Daughter ) on: Nov 12, 2019
