My deepest sympathies to his family Tara, Myrrya, Jonathan and Steeve. His sister and niece ❤. Bob had a huge heart and touched so many people with his kindness and incredible smile. He opened his heart and door to so many people in his community. I will never forget the impact he had on my life and the advice he gave me over the years. I will fondly remember the day we spent at the Hydro station learning about electricity, and our time spent at the golf driving range after my brother died. Cornwall will never be the same without Bob, he will always be in our hearts. Love Jewel xo

Bob was a wonderful husband to our Aunt Anita. He was a very kind man. He was also very comical. He will be missed dearly. He was also a man who helped many people in need, myself included. Thanks Bob.

Love the Shaver family.
