He leaves behind daughters, Cheryl (Mark) and Lynn (Jason); grandchildren, Megan (Bryce), Jake, Braden, Luke and blended family, Brenda, Miles and Michael, as well as many family members and friends back home in Newfoundland and here in Manitoba.
Much appreciation to the wonderful staff at Grace Hospital and Deer Lodge Centre for exemplary care and for "Making Lives Better." Special thanks to Bob's dear friends, Don, Rosie and neighbours for their love and support.
