  1. Beautifully written ❤️

    • My sympathies go to all the family, May he rest in peace in the arms of our Lord.

      • Benoit, thank you for your heart felt sympathy for Bob and his family.

        • I am still waiting for the date of his Celebration of Life date.

    • Bob was a close friend over the years. We played our last round together this summer at Victoria. We were quite evenly matched and had many a good game over the years.

      He truly was a master at his craft. His reputation for superb workmanship and execution was renowned. His list of high profile clients was impressive and they always called him in on large jobs with no bidding; he was that good. Gads they will surely miss his expertise.

      We had several good motorcycle rides. The most epic was him running a Laverda 1200 triple and I ran my BMW R100RS twin out to the west coast and back. Of course he loved his muscle cars and I could list at least half a dozen of those fire breathing monsters that he loved to run down the drag strip.

      May you find the loving embrace of our creator and rest comfortably my friend,…

      • May you rest in peace my friend
