Bob and Patsy's visits to our cottage were always a highlight of our summers. He was a good friend and delighted us with his great stories and joie de vivre. He will be greatly missed.

Bob was one of the unusual men, whom one gets to meet, socialize with and even work with occasionally. He was a sort of "vital" guy who had interests in everything. I had dinner with him and his late wife Pat years back at a federal CPC Policy gathering in Montreal and served on his executive through at least two federal campaigns. He assisted us in fundraising for a 2007 theatre project. I am so sorry to hear about his passing. A very courteous and neat gentleman, a builder of communities. I will miss him and I do believe it has only been four years since he had lost Pat. Too bad! Rest in peace, Bob.
