Bob grew up in Kitchener. After graduating from KCI, he apprenticed with Sutherland and Shultz where he received an electrician designation and was a proud member of IBEW Local 804. A few years later, he relocated to Tiverton and worked for many years at the Bruce Nuclear Plant. He moved to Owen Sound where he met the love of his life, Beverly. They shared many happy years together and were very involved in their community. Bob was a very generous and kind soul and was always the first to lend a helping hand.
