Bob worked at Algoma Steel for 37 years as a Blacksmith. Bobʼs favourite place to be was his camp, he enjoyed running a chainsaw, cutting wood and repairing the bridge. He had a hard time passing a tree without wanting to size it up for firewood or another log for the bridge.

Bob will be remembered for his sense of humour, quick wit and his ability to tell a story.

As per Bobʼs wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no formal services.

A celebration of life will follow at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to Arthur Funeral Home – Barton & Kiteley Chapel (492 Wellington St. E., 705-759-2522).
