Bob understood how to get the best out of every
moment. His children and grandchildren were a huge part of
his life. He loved kayaking, swimming, biking, golfing,
salmon fishing, canoeing, camping, and everything involving play,
especially if his children or grandchildren were playing with
Bob’s devotion to the Toronto Maple Leafs was
legend. Every season began with his unwavering optimism that
this would be the year they won the Stanley Cup.
Bob’s love of storytelling lead him to filmmaking, his first
career calling. He had a gentle way of drawing people’s
stories out so that they weren’t intimidated or made uncomfortable by
the camera and technical setup. His manner and their trust
allowed him to be genuine with everyone.
Bob believed that God is in everything you do. His
second calling came from his desire to live into his
spirituality. In 2017, he completed the United Church of
Canada’s Licensed Lay Worship Leaders program and began doing pulpit
supply in local churches. He appreciated so much that the
congregations he preached to prayed for his recovery.
He was thankful for his friends and his brother, Roger for
helping him every step of the way during the past two years by driving
him to treatments, joining him on bike rides and walks, playing pool,
making delicious soups and meals, golfing, and for believing in his
need to stay
Bob’s family is deeply saddened by his passing but they know
that by and by they will feel his presence in their hearts and minds
for all the things he taught them about living a good life.
May God bless this wonderful man.
