The Guest Book is expired.
How can anyone express the profound loss that is ours when Bob left us? Born in Regina June 20, 1953 to Thelma and John Fry, Bob died of cancer at the age of 59 years on Monday, March 11, 2013. He was predeceased by his son James, mother Thelma and sister Kathy. He leaves behind his wife of 23 years Joanne (Reitmeier); daughter Jody Reitmeier (Craig Brown) along with his first grandchild Lincoln John; son Jesse Fry (Mae); and daughter Jennifer. He also leaves to mourn his father John and stepmother Barb; sisters Sandy (Wayne) Isted and Shelley Moffatt along with his nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, cousins and several hundred brothers and sisters of the Regina Fire Department, and a huge list of friends. Bob was born and raised in Regina. He became a firefighter for the City of Regina in 1977 and retired five years ago from the department after 32 years of service. He was a wonderful father to his children and he was a great friend. Bob loved to draw. He could pick up a pen and before you knew it there was a flawless picture of a car or plane or whatever he felt like drawing at the time. He was fun to be with and loved to laugh. He lived by the motto "be good to each other." He was looking forward to walking his grandson around the museum. It was not to be. His grandson will only know his grandpa through pictures, videos and stories told by those who loved Bob. We all share our special moments about Bob. Whether it be a moment of kindness he showed us, the help he gave us or a kind word he spoke to us that somehow made our lives a bit better. Bob leaves behind a wealth of happiness and good memories for all of us to share. So share your stories of Bob. Have a laugh about a good time you shared with him. He had no regrets. He was proud to call the men and women of the Regina Fire Department his brothers and sisters. A celebration of his life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, March 15, 2013 at Trinity Lutheran Church, 1909 Ottawa Street, Regina. We would like to thank the doctors and staff of 3B and 3A at the Pasqua Hospital who took such excellent care of Bob. In lieu of flowers donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.
