After 5 years in the Royal Canadian Navy, he spent all his business life in the Marine Engine & Generator business. Always a lover of being on water, he owned a succession of boats mostly fast, until his last vessel, the 32ft. steel converted Lake Erie fish tug, on which he spent many happy days & weeks on Georgian Bay with family & friends, cruising & of course fishing! Family & friends also enjoyed the parties & music at their cottage on Little Go Home Bay for 39 years., where many happy memories were made. He was a loving, caring, wonderful father & friend, knowledgeable on many subjects, very witty, comical always, willing to help when needed. He remembered & cherished all the many friends he made in his lifetime.

We want to express our sincere condolences on the passing of Bob. We enjoyed his wisdom and stories in the short time that he worked for us. His hints on navigating the Georgian Bay proved to be very useful to us as new boaters.
