I worked with Bob for at least 10 years at Western Co-op. He will always be remembered as not one of the best, but the best millwright I ever had the pleasure to work with. A great guy. He will be missed.

My dad, Len Trevors, and Bob, were very good friends until my dad passed away in 2009. On Remembrance Day, for many years, my husband, Tom, and some friends, would attend a service with Bob and Dad, and then all of us would go out to lunch. Bob was a true gentleman, and a very interesting, intelligent, man. His accomplishments are exceptional.

We are so sorry for your loss. May the fact that Bob is now at rest give you peace and comfort at this sad time, and in the future. Our deepest sympathy to you.

Dale, Wendy and Barry,

My deepest condolences to hear of the passing of your dad.

For the few time that I met him at your house, he was always very nice to me. I always have good memories of him.

Dale, It been about 30 years since we last saw each other at your place in Nanaimo, hope you're OK.
I know your strong character will pull you through this time of grief.

Ken
