He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Darlene, 5 brothers and sisters, his 3 boys Dale, Wade (Jacinda) and Brent (Laura).  Bob was also blessed with 4 amazing grandchildren.  He was predeceased by his parents and 4 brothers and sisters.

Bob was known as the “glue” of the family.  He accepted all into his family, everyone was always welcome. 

Bob spent most of his working life on the road working tirelessly to support his family as they grew up mainly in the Spruce Grove area.  Later is his working life he returned to Slave Lake to work in the forestry and oil and gas industry to complete his working career.  During early retirement he was happy working with his horses, tending to his acreage and spending time with his wife, friends and family.  As his health became more of a challenge Bob and his wife relocated to Stony Plain where he spent the remaining years reconnecting with old friends and family members.
