Bob had many interests but his favorite was to make people laugh. He made friends easily and with his quick wit he was never without a joke to make everyone around him smile. We will cherish each and every joke he told. A devoted husband, he spent all of his free time with his wife, Marion, of 60 years until her untimely death on May 22, 2011.

His adoring love for his children, grandchildren and grand dogs was surpass…he had a special place in his heart for all God’s creatures. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to his beloved caretaker, Desreen aka “Tangerine”, who had cared for him the past 9 months.
