My condolences to Sharon and children on the passing of your husband and father. Bob loved a joke, a drink, a party - and made everything fun. Although I never worked with Bob in the T/D Bk, my ex-husband did, so I got to know the family fairly well. There was always lots of action at your house and I can remember the many new vacuums needed because they wore out quite quickly. I hope you can find peace in the wonderful memories you have of Bob.

Our condolences to you, Sharon, Kyle, Sean, Amberley and Erin. We lived across from you on Glenashton in Stoney Creek. I remember Bob as a boisterous, fun loving man. I live in Smithville now and often think of all of you and wondered where you ended up. He is gone too soon. Russ and Gloria Niblock

My deepest condolences to Sharon (may never have earned the right to call you Sam), Sean, Kyle, Amberley and Squirt (Erin). I worked with Bob in both St. Catharines and Kitchener. While in Kitchener, I also spent a great deal of time (very likely more time than Sam cared for) at club Merritt and recall talking with Bob about the bank well into the night. While in my 20's, I wasn't as sensitive to things like 4 young kids at home (and their busy schedules), and 2 dogs (Bear and Cleo?) as I should have been...sorry Sam!!!. I can't thank Bob enough for everything he did for me in those early days both personally and professionally. He was a tremendous leader and while not everything he did fully conformed to a highly structured environment, his heart was always in the right place and as the saying goes....he did it his way. My wife Kim and I have a 19 year old son playing in the Western Hockey League along with a 16 year old daughter (a member of Canada's Junior National Softball Team). I regret not being able to introduce them to Bob. Had I done so, I am sure the gathering would have gone well into the night. Rest in peace my friend. You will be missed. Dave Benson, Vancouver, BC
