Bob grew up in Winnipeg and worked for Emco Supply for 39 years. In 1990, Bob and Rose moved to Nanaimo, B.C., where they began retirement. Later moves to Calgary, Harrison Hot Springs, B.C., and, finally, Abbotsford, B.C., were wonderful opportunities to live close to family and make new friends. Bob was a dedicated husband and father. He loved his time with his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed chess, picnics and books. A skilled woodworker, Bob had fond memories of helping build Westwood Community Church, Winnipeg. Bob died peacefully.
