I first met Rob after entering George Vanier Secondary School for Grade 13. He was part of a small group of academics that seemed impossibly smart at math and science, to which I aspired. Due to his abilities, I expected him to be a bit arrogant or a bit difficult, but he was not. He never behaved out of order or deviated from his upstanding behaviour in any way I can recall. I thought this had to be an act, but we went together to University and I learned that this was true Rob, through and through. Even if someone merely said something disparaging about someone else, Rob would have a slightly uncomfortable grin that appeared to mask a bit of pain or discomfort. Even his laughter at our often ridiculous situations in University seemed gentle but sincere.
I am sorry that we lost touch after our children were born. I am sorry for the loss to his family and loved ones, and also to the world as there are not enough people like Rob in it.

So sad to hear about Rob. We knew Rob from high school and university. He was a very kind and gentle person who always had a smile for you. He will be very much missed by his EngSci friends.

We appreciate all the beautiful words and stories shared. Thank you to those who have sent flowers on here and to the house. The family really appreciates what we've received but does not want to have too many flowers.

If you wish to send something, in lieu of flowers Rob and the family have requested donations be made to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. More information can be found at:
Thank you all,
Tyrrell James (Rob's son)
