Brian and I remember so many good times shared with Bob and Eleanor. How they opened their house to Tara for a summer and treated her like their own. Many meals and nights together at ringette tournaments. Bob enjoyed chats with the guys and was always so great to have around. We will forever remember and cherish those memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this difficult time. He was loved by all who knew him.
