Condolences to Bob's mother and brothers - what a sad loss. I got to know Bob at Manulife, and we were able to keep in touch since he left - meeting occasionally for lunch, especially at Mongolian Grill. He was such a positive, friendly and kind person - it was a pleasure to know him and I've learned from him so much that I can apply to my own life like how to be strong in the face of adversity, and how to always, ALWAYS take time to learn new things.
My thoughts are with you all.

My most sincere condolences to Bob's family and friends. I worked with Bob, he was on my first team at Manulife. He was so great to work with, he knew his stuff and was always there to help me out. What a great sense of humor we had so many laughs. Such a great person.

My most sincere condolences to Bob's family and friends. We knew him when he was my son's Beaver Leader, and the time and devotion that he poured into that role with the boys, was nothing short of amazing. We lost a great leader.

Bob was a very special person. We both Scouted with the 38th Kitchener Scout Group. Bob loved the beaver program and made it a great experience for every youth. I always teased him he was a wannabe Cub Leader as he volunteered so many summers at Everton. Bob will be missed by so many; the condolences are great in number on all the Scouting Facebook pages with many memories and pictures. Mary Ann Millar, former Cub Leader and district commissioner in North Waterloo.
