Uncle Bo as he was known by the extended family and Pabo, as the grandkids called him, had numerous interests including hockey, golf, fishing, running, hiking/walking, painting, boating but his favorite thing was being there to help, support, advise or entertain his family and the people around him. He was tireless in his efforts to give more than expected as he would frequently say to those seeking advice and he lived every day to the fullest. His greatest love was his family. The dedication and devotion he showed towards them along with the personal sacrifices he made for them made him the greatest husband, father, grandfather, brother or uncle anyone could ever have. Words cant explain how much he will be missed by all those that had the privilege of knowing him.
