Bob was born in Rouyn Noranda, Quebec and moved to Montreal shortly afterwards.
As a child, Bob loved to read and play sports and continued to enjoy these passions throughout his whole life. As he grew older he also developed a love of travelling.
His successful sales career took him from Montreal to Halifax and to London, England, where he spent four years experiencing and enjoying all the enriching opportunities living abroad afforded him.
One of his most enjoyable sales experiences was his 20+ years as a sales agent with his partner,Ted. This role enabled him to travel extensively, taste exquisite wine and food and meet many interesting people.
Bob was a gentle, kind and generous man; an understanding, loving, and supportive husband; and was affectionately known as Big Bob by his many nephews and nieces.
Bob passed away peacefully on September18 after a six-month battle with cancer. Throughout this challenging journey he was a real trooper and never complained. He often commented about what a great life he had had and how fortunate he was to have such a devoted and caring wife, wonderful friends and a loving and supporting family.
Bob will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him. As my sister, Tracey, said the day he died, “Heaven got a good one today.” Rest in peace my big, beautiful husband. I love you.
