So sorry to hear of this loss! Robert was a kind man and my mom and I spoke with him not long before he passed, brought him coffee late last year. He enjoyed having phone chats with my mom and we liked to check up on him to see how he was feeling. Its a very sad time indeed, I was shocked to hear about this. He was a good person. May he rest in peace.

Sorry to hear about Bobs passing. I know he was a great father to his 3 sons. Was sorry to see the omission of Trevors husband, Joe from the obit. I know Bob was very proud of all his boys.

Rest In Peace my dear friend Rob Snow.....We shared many good time over the years, here In Ontario, and in Cape Breton, where we were both born in the town of Glace Bay, 22 days apart. You from Birch Grove and I from Port Morien. We met at age 13, when my late sister Donna was teaching school in Birch Grove, and she arranged a picnic for the Birch Grover's in Long beach, so I owe our long friendship to her I guess, or I might not have met you. A true friend is sometimes hard to find, I have always considered you a true friend. May god go with you Rob.
