He is predeceased by sister, Wendy, and brother, Jack. Bob grew up in Vancouver, BC, apprenticing as a carpenter in his early twenties. He spent his career in the construction industry as a Project Inspector for the Government of BC and as a Maintenance Supervisor for both the Williams Lake and Nanaimo school districts. He was a Past President of the School Plant Officials Association of BC. He retired in Nanaimo in 1990. Bob spent his retirement years indulging in his love of golf, as a member of the Nanaimo Golf Club, “RV”ing with Joan throughout North America and spending time with his grandchildren.
