One of my best buddies post high school growing up in Ottawa. Bob was a groomsman in my marriage to Gayle. I returned to Ottawa some years later and we reconnected. Bob was a great man, loyal, humorous, well informed and conversant on just about anything. It is sad to know Bob has left us; he will be remembered and missed.
