Bob was an avid sports enthusiast who loved life and as he has said
many times recently, he had a great life. Although he suffered from
COPD for the latter part of his life, it did not stop him from
watching his favourite sports on TV which gave him much joy. To watch
his face light up when he was asked to talk about his days with Balmy
Beach Football club was an understatement, it was an important part of
Early in his career he moved to Calgary and traveled continuously
throughout western Canada. Bob made numerous dear friends across the
country, many of which he kept in very close contact with.
His family started in Calgary and was later relocated to Toronto,
which allowed he and his family to spend a lot of time at the family
cottage in Bolsover, ON. Here again, water sports, power boating and
sailing were thoroughly enjoyed with friends and family. Bob was the
first one on the lake to have a Windsurfer in the mid 70’s and
was active with the community for the water ski competitions. The disc
or “saucer” and “Lingley’s Leaping
Leena” were a common sight on Canal Lake.
He was extremely proud of his children and his grandkids. Bob
relocated to Fredericton in 2016 which allowed him to be able to spend
more time with family and a bit closer to Saint John NB where they
spent many summers learning to sail.
Bob is now at peace and the suffering has gone, he will be dearly
Honouring Bob’s request, there will be no visitation or funeral
service, please raise a glass of your favourite beverage in
celebration of a life that was thoroughly enjoyed–
