    To All Of Bob’s Family,
    I met Bob through bridge here in Lethbridge. He was a personality you instantly liked. I asked him to join us on our Bridge Club Board and got to know him much better. We asked him to tell us some stories about Packers Roost – the board meetings were never boring ever again. He was one of my favourites at the Bridge Club and we will miss him immensely.

    Our sincerest sympathies are with you all – Gerry and Birthe Perry

  2. Erin Bates says:

    I am very sad to hear the loss of Bob. He was a beautiful man with the kindest heart. Seeing him on Tuesday and being invited to “boys club” always put a smile on my face. Bob always had a way to make me laugh and had the best stories. I will cherish all the memories of Bob and hold them dear. Margaret and Bob’s family my thoughts are with all of you

  3. Pat Stirton says:

    I met Bob at the cardiac rehab program. He had a wonderful sense of humour. When my partner died Bob listened to me and generally was just there for me. I didn’t see much of Bob the last few years yet I felt we could pick up where we had left off. Bob will be missed by his family and his many friends.
