Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
Joel and family, Terry & I are sorry to hear the loss of your dad & mom. They are together again. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. - Posted by: Donna & Terry Clark (Cousin ) on: Dec 13, 2021
One of our favourite, persisting memories of Bob is his tale of the meeting with Thompson Speedway nerd, Englishman Bob Leigh, who told him at a social gathering “.... and you know Bob; oi'm not, apply til I'm goin' noontime mile an our SOIDEWAYS!” So since that time Shaun and Bob always greeted each other 'And you know Bob' (or Shaun) which persisted to this day. God rest you Bob. - Posted by: Jill & Shaun Walton (Old friends ) on: Dec 11, 2021
Joel and family; Please accept Deborah and my sincere condolences at the loss of Bob and Willi, whom I am certain were wonderful parents and grandparents. I've known Bob more a long time; He was the City inspector on a wastewater project at the North End plant when I was resident engineer for Wardrop, in the early 1970s. In fact he helped me build a house during that time. I always marveled that he could drive a 3 1/2 inch nail with three blows of a hammer! Without Bob's help I'd probably still be working on that house. Later, I joined the City and we were co-workers for many years. Our encounters of late have been far too few, but I was able to talk to him by phone after Willi's passing and it was obvious that he missed her terribly. If you can take any solace from this, it would be that now they are together again. Sincerely, Tom and Deborah Pearson - Posted by: Tom Pearson (Friend) on: Dec 11, 2021
