I had the pleasure of first meeting Bob in connection with his father several years ago. I then worked with Bob through the Elks. He was a very kind man, always very polite and always thoughtful. My sympathies to the family. You will have memories to enjoy always.

My sincere condolences to Addy and family. I have known
Bob for many years. I first knew Bob at the Curling Rink and we both were members of the Elks and were involved together in the bingo for many years. Bob also served on the Elks Golden Villa Board with me. Bob was a very kind hearted man and will be missed by all.
