My heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family. Bob was a good man and truly a kind person. He will be missed.
Phil Taylor Red Deer AB:
I first knew Bob in the early 90's working with Eastern Ind Telecom. We always had a lot of fun and worked hard at the same time. Later we moved from Brockville to Red Deer and I had the opportunity to work quite often with Bob...Later we both worked for Compower and I got to work with Bob most of the time. Knowing Bob can only enrich someones life as it did mine. I am very grateful of knowing Bob and Joyce..We will always remember them both.
