Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
I knew Bob for many years. He lived across the street until selling the house and moving to Poplar Bay. We still kept in touch by phone and the occasional meal when he came into the city. He loved his trips to Princess Auto and McDonald’s or Wendy’s. He will be missed by many! Rod and Isabel Delaine - Posted by: Rod Delaine (Friend) on: Aug 13, 2022
My family knew Bob for many years . We met him at Poplar Bay Resort nearly 20 years ago ago. We had a trailer in the park for over 5 years and Bob was always there to help. He knew more about fixing trailer issues than the people that built them. He lived for Poplar Bay Park. I had many quiet times with him watching the NASA channel and eating TV dinners. He was always willing to help people in the trailer park and I know he will be missed - Posted by: Gary Simpson (Friend ) on: Aug 06, 2022
