Not sure what to say?

Bob has always been a man of love and kindness. Our childrens' lives were enriched by having an uncle Bob.

Words cannot describe how sad you now remain Linda with the loss of the man who loved you so dearly.

Robert was one of most cherish members when I was President of the Concordia University Part-time Faculty Association.

Robert extended his compassion for others in all he did. His friendship had meaning. He came to my rescue too many times to count whether it meant educating me about methodology, responding to argumentation needed during contract negotiations or in...

You will be sorely missed Bob, an inspiring colleague and human being!!!

Better late than never I knew Bob Turnbull, Prof. Turnbull from Loyola CEGEP in the early 79s.
He taught me Psych and his classes were wonderful.
He was also kind enough to allow me and a friend take his dogs up north one day to my family cottage for a dip in the lake.
A fantastic day, notwithstanding that one dog took my glasses from the boat while we were swimming. Being very near sighted this was a scary moment, as I was the driver, but they were found and the story became a...

Linda, my deepest sympathies to you. I only learned of Bob's passing away today; I have many very fond memories of him, of the two of you, and of our friendship in the early seventies. Fishing, dog-loving, and fine conversation: all treasured memories. The world has lost a truly gentle man.

Linda, I am saddened by this, even though it has been many years. I have a vivid memory of Bob and a very big dog (was it Boggles? ) lovingly staring into each other's eyes, both in the standing position., in your kitchen.

Twenty years ago we had the good fortune of becoming Bob and Linda's neighbours. Water's edge was a small street but on it lived Bob, a giant figure of a man and one of the gentlest, kindest person we have ever known. He always had a great disposition, never had we seen him get mad or lose his temper with anyone or anything. We will cherish his memory dearly and every day we shall strive to be a little bit more like Him. Our sincere condolences to his family and Linda, you know...

Bob was a wonderful neighbour, always happy to lend a hand and a fixture in our neighbourhood with the dogs whom he loved so much. We will miss his smiling face. Rest in peace Bob.

When I decided to take a new career path in my life, I made a fateful road trip to Montreal to research psychology programs in the city. I clearly remember being introduced to Bob in his Loyola campus office, how he put me at ease, and that he gave me the confidence to give my dream a shot. The following Fall and Winter semesters, I was his student talking his Intro to Psychology evening class on the 8th floor of the Hall building. During the next year and a half, he gave me the opportunity...
