April 29/1946 – Jan. 11/2016


On Monday Jan. 11, 2016 Bob slipped away peacefully while in the hospital. He leaves behind to mourn his loss; Linda his wife of 46 years, son David, daughter in law Teresa and grandchildren Jason and Jessica. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia Bob struck out West in search of work at the age of 21 leaving family and good friends Dave, Brock, Chris and Jean. Making Sooke his home since 1972 Bob developed a passion for fishing and will be missed by all those who knew him from the Sooke Government Wharf. Bob devoted much of his time over the years in the Sooke community coaching

minor hockey, sharing his love of stained glass artwork and volunteering at the Sooke Community Association.

He was a good man with a gentle soul and will be dearly missed by all.
