Lisa and Family Our deepest condolences on the loss of Robert. Both Bob and I worked with Robert for many years at DH (Bombardier) We have many fond memories of the days and years we spent with him. You were the love of his life and he was so proud of Rob. I remember him telling me about Rob doing the Rita McNeil show and his many hockey games that he had filmed. Then along came Sarah, boy he was such a proud papa and then Jake ,wow he was in his glory. He also spent many hours of overtime with Bob doing massive telecom moves for the Engineering Dept.. We will have everlasting memories of such a fine man.
