    He will be missed by many. I delivered the papers for quite a few years. Loved his humour. Made me smile and laugh. Never know when your time is up. Enjoy 1 day at a time to the fullest. RIP Bob.

    Linda my sympathies to you and your family

    So sorry to hear about my friend, Bob. What is missing from his obituary is that Bob was also an excellent truck driver. He worked for a number of years for a broker who had a truck on with Total Transportation, running a team run between Toronto and Winnipeg. Bob and I shared many hours together in the truck. It is really difficult to find someone you trust enough to run “team” with, and Bob was a wonderful team partner. Bob and I lost touch over the years, but I will miss not knowing he is out there.
