Bob cared deeply about his family, and always showed kindness to others.
He worked 30 years with the Department of Highways in Saskatoon, and in 2005, he moved closer to his sisters living in Fort Qu’Appelle, where he enjoyed his retirement years.
He loved working in his yard and often could be found sitting at his outdoor firepit with family and friends. Bob loved to talk and joke, always having a story to tell. Mostly though he talked of his children and grandchildren and how proud he was of all their accomplishments.
At Bob’s request, there will be no funeral held at this time. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the Salvation Army in memory of Bob.
