Dear Gail and family, wishing you comfort and peace, and know that your Dad’s gardening efforts would have touched the hearts of those who loved nature, and brightened many days. Holding you close to our hearts, Caryn and Rolf.

I worked with Bob as a grade 2 gardener with the City of Etobicoke Parks Department. Bob became a good friend as did his wife Joan who we sometimes stopped to visit and have a cup of tea. We visited Bob several times after they moved to Cherry Valley. I will always remember him recognizing us as soon as we walked in his room. He always enjoyed showing us the jigsaw puzzles he had done.
God bless my dear friend.
