I was fortunate enough to have worked with Bob at Ontario Hydro/Hydro One. We first met in Windsor Ontario at Lauzon TS 1969. Bob was a co-worker, a good friend, one of a kind, a great story teller and truly an unforgettable person.
All who knew Bob will miss him.

I first meet Bob at Brotherhood Lodge when he was part of my initiation team he was a great help to me while I worked my way through the degrees, through the chairs and while I was Master. Because of his abilities he was one of the guys that I try to emulate when I did/do work in the lodge. He would always be ready to give a helping hand when ever needed. I remember working on the cornerstone project together, he drove the forms down to Hamilton to make sure they got there on time. He would come by from time to time for a visit when in the area to share a story or a bit of wisdom. I will miss him, his wisdom and his visits. We as a fraternity have lost a great assets and a Great Mason.

Goodbye old friend.

Bob Gregory was a great friend of mine and one of a kind.

He was a wonderful human being in all respects and a gentle soul. Always ready to lend a hand to anyone in need.

I have wonderful memories of our times together in and outside of Lodge, sharing his knowledge with me and listening to his stories.

Rest In Peace my friend. I will always remember you with fondness.

I was very sorry to hear that Bob had passed on. I have fond memories of him through Masonic. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.

Bob was a kind and humble man, a great friend, and a mentor. He was the one person every Master wanted to see walk through the door of the lodge at any degree or installation as Bob was a great ritualist who knew every part and he would happily step in to cover any part if the person assigned couldn't attend. He joined us on a Masonic trip to Cuba two years ago and said it was the best trip of his life. Bob was everyone's favourite on the trip and he would sing songs and regale the group with stories and jokes throughout the trip. I will miss my good friend and will continue to sing his songs and tell his jokes in his honour. If you were lucky enough to have met Bob... you will have found the ideal of a Freemason.

Bob, was a Masonic Brother for myself, who carried himself with great Panache. Upon meeting him for the 1st time, his specialness was obvious, to know him was to love him. I will miss you Bob 😔

Bob was a fine man and a dedicated Mason. I have many fond memories of him. His smiling face and great sense of humour will be sorely missed as will his contribution to many Masonic functions.
