Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • sending my condolences to Beverly, and Baergen family. I remember Bev talked about her Dad with such a loving heart, you may not remember us! (Cathy and Jenny) we worked together @ a convalescent home (Golden Door Nursing home) years ago. I was reading the obits and came across your Father's name, saw your name and wanted to send my heartfelt condolence. May your Father rest in peace.

  • Bob and I played fastball together in the late sixties; Bob would catch and I would pitch and vice versa . The Bethel Blues won three tournaments in a row . Bob also had a great bass voice and sang in the Bethel church choir when I was directing. Linda and I want to send our condolences to Betty and the family . We also fondly remember Robert who was the ring bearer at our wedding. We wish you all the Peace of Christ. Peter and Linda Elias - Posted by: Peter and Linda Elias (Friend) on: Feb 17, 2021

  • Our relationship began with friendly hallway nods and grew into years of daily meetings in farthest corner of the cafeteria to chat over coffee and complete his crossword puzzles. A dear friendly soul indeed. May he Rest In Peace. - Posted by: Robert Friesen (RRC Colleague ) on: Feb 14, 2021

  • I remember Bob as always having a smile on his face and always having a positive outlook on life. One of my favourite memories of Bob was that he looked forward to having a free haircut from the students at RRCC's Barber and Hair Styling course. Regardless of the outcome, he would simply shrug it off with a smile saying, it'll grow back. My heartfelt condolescences to his family and friends. May he rest in peace. - Posted by: Mike Landry (Work colleague) on: Feb 13, 2021
