Bob was raised in Matachewan, Ontario and spent his teenage years in Toronto before moving north to the Pronto mine site where he would settle for life. He spent 34 years working for Rio Algom at Pronto, Pater, Quirke and Stanleigh mines.  In retirement, he was always busy working his trap line, hunting, fishing, gardening, being a wonderful grandpa and travelling with Marilyn.

Bob could always be counted on to give a helping hand whenever he could and forged many friendships over the years that lasted a lifetime.  He will be sadly missed by those who knew him.

A celebration of Bob’s life was held on Saturday, July 28, 2018 at the Blind River Community Centre If you wish, donations in Bob's memory to the North Shore Health Network would be appreciated
