Bob will be greatly missed by his sister-in-laws, nieces, nephews, and special friend Julie Greene.
Bob worked on the CPR for 38 years, starting as a brake man on freight and eventually a conductor on the VIA train. With great pride, he loved his work there and has shared many interesting stories of the passengers that he travelled with. He was a true Irishman and lover of the blarney stone. He often boasted about his castle in Ireland and made up his own lyrics to celtic song.
