It just came to our attention the passing of Bob. Deepest sympathy from our Wolfe family. We did have some good times together and bob was always keen for some good humor. Never knew another man with such a keen memory. He is a noticeably missing cog in the community. Take care

Arthur and I send our sympathy to all Bob's family. When we first moved to our house across the fields from Bob and Nan in 1979, he was our go-to person as we attempted to adapt to life in the dead of winter in the country. He was always patient and always helpful, whether it was a finicky well, a wobbly fence, a tiny but scary house fire, or meandering horses. Many years later I worked with a BU student who roomed with Bob and his wife in Brandon, and she found him to be as gentle and supportive as we had long before. He was very special, and we remember him with love.

I am one of his nieces and lived just up the road from him and my Nanny on the farm. I remember just after I got my DL at 16 yrs old. He picked me up in the truck(manual stick) and we drove to the middle of a pasture where his tractor was. He got out and said I had to drive the truck back OMG!! After a couple of tries I got it down pat and drove it over some hilly roads back to the farm.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Bob. It has been many years since we have been in contact with Bob and Steph but have very fond memories of time we have spent together. Our visits on the farm near Kenton where we were made to feel very much at home. Bob would take the kids Tara and Kimmie on hayrides that would be the highlight of any city kids day.He was a very gentle and quiet man but would always share stories about his cows and farming. Guy alway enjoyed their chats. Our condolences to his family.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Bob was such a sweet man. I still remember ‘prepping’ your honeymoon suite, sewing your lingerie outfit and co-ersing James to be our accomplice. Such a fun time!!
