Bob passed away on November 3, 2012 leaving behind his beloved wife Avril; children Cameron (Alana), Malea and Vanessa (Spencer) and grandchildren, Alice Oliver, Max, and Cooper. Bree and Avery. Everyone will miss him dearly.
His love for his grandchildren filled his heart and gave him such joy. Some of his happiest times were swimming with them in the pond or building art easels with them as he taught them the names of all his tools that they used.
Bob retired from the North York Fire Department as a Rescue Captain and during his career was awarded the Ontario Medal of Bravery for rescuing a young toddler from her burning home. Bob was a member of the Critical Stress team, which provided support to his fellow fire department brothers.
Bob became an active member of the Smith's Cove and Digby communities, known for his happy smile and positive attitude. He loved to chat with everyone he met during his day while out and about in the community. Bob was an active member of Smith's Cove Volunteer Fire Department former board member of DALA, Digby Area Learning Association and former President and current board member of "The Bay Wind Field Inc.

Family would like to extend a heartfelt "Thank You" to the community for pulling together to help and support the family during this sad time. Many thanks to the Digby EMS, Digby RCMP and Digby Fire Department for their heroic efforts.
