Condolence from Kerry & Wayne Higman on July 24th, 2020 10:02 PM

Lila, Harry & Wendy, Joan & Ken and families: Our heartfelt sympathy to all of you, for your profound loss. Bob was one of those guys who was larger than life…his candid sense of humour, his genuine friendship, and his ability to make “connection” with every generation was second to none. We vividly remember with fondness, (and a chuckle or two) all those years of B & L Music…we never missed a dance opportunity when Bob and Lila were playing close to home, wherever it was at the time. And Bob never failed to remember our favourite tune, ….. I can hear him now…”sending this one out to Higgy and Kerry”. A man who will be sorely missed by many, near and far. RIP Bob…thanks for the memories.

We are truly saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. So many memories of dances and travelling with Bob to nursing homes to entertain when I was a “step dancer” in my younger days. Bob was always happy and loved to sing along while he kept everyone on the dance floor. Hearing stories of the joy and laughter he brought to so many will hopefully fill your hearts with love and pride as you travel through the many stages of grief. Small town memories of wonderful people. Very sorry for your loss.
