I am sorry to hear of your loss. Bob Ackles was one of the finest guy's I have ever known. He treated everyone with respect. In the dog eat dog world of the NFL it was nice to see someone that truly had compassion for his fellow man and Bob did.

Whether it was in Vancouver, Regina, or any other CFL city, interviewing Bob was like visiting with a long-time friend. I'm going to miss him and so are my compatriots in the Football Reporters of Canada.

"Mr. BC Lion" is about the best way to sum up Bob Ackles. I've followed the team with all their highs and lows since 1977. With the passing of Bob, not only does it leave a big hole to fill within the team, but the city of Vancouver has lost one of the greats.

He had a keen eye for everything to do with football and the knack to find just the "right fit" for the team. His return to the CFL in 2002 saved the team from sinking into oblivion. For this and so many other contributions, we thank you, Bob.
My condolences to the family. The province of BC shares in your loss.

I.ve been a football nut for 67 years, player and fan, but I've never seen such affection for a guy that runs a football club. Proof that good guys can win. I think his most important legacy will be as a mentor to us all on how to treat everyone with honesty and respect.

Dear Kay, Scott, Steven and family's my deepest condolences for your huge loss. Bobby was such a great guy, and always looked you in the eye and made you feel that you were important and respected. He was quick to laugh and had such a zest for life. His spirit will remain for all those that loved him, which are many. A sad time, but a joyous life lead, full of wonderful memories, from a loving husband, father and grandpa. Hugs, cousin Ann.
