Rob was a generous and gregarious man who was happy to share his knowledge and skills with others. He loved sports and especially hockey, and in earlier years was involved in community hockey as a coach and trainer, and helped with various hockey clubs.
While his health allowed, he was an enthusiastic golfer. He was an avid fisherman and loved nothing more than to be out on an Ontario lake catching fish with Derek and Jessica.
Rob was a skilled carpenter and craftsman who built many beautiful, useful and lasting items for his home, and for relatives and friends.
Rob dearly loved the family dogs, Kesuk and Deohge, and made sure they always had everything dogs could want.
Most of all Rob was devoted to his wife and children, and took great joy in their family life together, being involved in everyone’s activities and taking pride in their accomplishments.
He will be greatly missed.
In memory of Rob, memorial donations to the Arthritis Society would be appreciated.
