Bobby was born in Astorville, Ontario on August 5th, 1949, and grew up in Callander, before settling in Sudbury. He was a proud heavy equipment operator with Vale for 33 years, retiring in 2002. He loved the outdoors, fishing, hunting, and spending time at his camps in Westree and Long Lake. His passion was motorcycles, and nothing brought him more joy than riding his beloved 2006 Harley Davidson Night Train. Family was most important to Bobby, and we are grateful for the good times and memories he left us with that we will cherish forever.

The family would like to express a heartfelt thank you to the team at the Northern Cancer Center for their excellent care, also to the Bayshore nurses, and the care coordinator at LIHNS, for their ongoing care, compassion, and support, not only to Bobby, but to his family as well.

At his request there will be no visitation or service. Cremation at the Park Lawn Crematorium. Donations to Pet Save or the NCF Cancer Center and would be appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to Sudbury Park Lawn Cremation Service. For donations or messages of condolence
