As a young girl I remember Uncle Bob’s love for trains! He would put a 45 record on the record player and Dad would crank the sound up and Uncle Bob just threw his arm up and pulled that horn and let her rip in time with the record.
I don’t know which train it was but he passed on his great enthusiasm on to all of us. He had a very big laugh.
He was my mum’s brother and I loved him dearly. He enjoyed getting a kick out of calling me ‘Gaily’ which wasn’t my favourite nickname but he would just smile and give me a big hug and all was well.
He had an infectious sense of humour and was so very kind hearted. I will always remember him lovingly.
I was blessed to have him in my life, I know I’m not alone in saying how he will be sorely missed.
Rest easy Uncle Bob, heaven is a better place having you. Give all those that have gone before you a big hug from me. I hope to be with all of you one day. ❤️

So many wonderful memories! One so insignificant, but that often pops into my head is going with Barb and “Mr. B” to “The Pop Shoppe” and helping to pick out the Pop to fill the red cases! Silly, but still a special memory for me.
My heart is breaking at the loss of “Mr. B”. Thinking of you all and extending our most heartfelt sympathies at this difficult time.
