Condolence from Debbie (sywyk) Alexander on October 22nd, 2018 10:46 PM

Saddened to hear of Rob’s passing…..i have many great memories of past times while living as neighbours in Huron Park….I don’t think i can remember ever seeing Rob when he didn’t have a big smile on his face….i think one of my fondest memories is of the Thursday night bingo at the recreation annex that the Lions club ran….Rob was always there helpinh…my dad used to come from London to play and he was always grumbling when he didn’t win and i remember Rob telling him if he ever did win the jackpot, that he was going to pay dad in pop bottles and he would make my dad laugh so hard. Heaven will be a better place having Rob as one of its angels…and if he and dad end up at the same bingo, maybe Rob will still get that chance.

Condolence from Brenda Morgan on October 24th, 2018 11:56 AM

I am so sorry to read about Bob’s passing. I remember Bob with that huge smile,, and his bubbly personality. I know how much he liked his lottery tickets, and I hope there is a terminal in Heaven where he can still get his 649’s, etc to keep him playing. Bob was so well known, and extremely liked by so many people,, that is such testimony to the kind of person he was, and you,, as his family, must be so proud of the man he was. I imagine Kathy was waiting for him, with open arms,, after such a long wait to see him once again. What a reunion that must have been!! Thinking of you all during this extremely rough time in your lives. Hugs to you all..

Condolence from Norm and Kay Tripp on October 24th, 2018 11:57 AM

Ann and your Family….We knew and very much liked Bob for many years..He was always a gentlemen…hold onto those memories…our condolences..Norm and Kay

I would like to send my deepest sympathy to you, Ann.
I fondly remember going to bingo games and seeing him at the arena growing up in Huron Park. I can bet him and my dad are up there talking about all those trips back and forth to bingo games with you ladies.
I would also like to send condolences on behalf of my mom as well.
May you treasure all those memories.
