Our deepest condolences on the passing of Bob, such a kind and decent man. Linda & Bob were some of the first people we met after moving to Foxboro Green. They were a wonderful couple and we hope and pray they are together for eternity.

I knew Bob and Linda through his sister Helen and although I did not know him well, I can honestly say he was a great guy and am sad that he passed away so quickly way before his time. May he rest in peace.

Bob and I would often chat or just wave at each other from our cars every Tuesday while delivering Meals On Wheels in New Hamburg. He was such a lovely and kind man. I first met Bob and Linda in 2006 at the weekly Taoist Tai Chi practice sessions in New Hamburg. I was so sad to read his obituary in The Record and will miss his friendly smile and our interesting conversations. My deepest condolences to his family.

So sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I didn’t really know him but I use to talk to him regularly at the cemetary. His wife is buried close to my Dads grave. It was always so heart warming to see how much pride he took in making sure his wife’s flower garden perfect. ❤

Although we didn’t share a long friendship with our wonderful neighbour here at Luther Village, we were privileged to be part of his life. It has been amazing to learn of the universal impact he had on so many friends at Luther Village, Foxboro Green, and the Waterloo Tennis Club.

Came across this Dr Seuss quote recently and think even Bob might agree with the sentiment!
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

Thank you for sharing your smile, quiet kindness, wisdom, and sense of humour. You had an impact that continues.

We are deeply sorry at the loss of Bob. We got to know him well at Foxboro and will miss him. He was one of the kindest men I think we have ever met and a real contributor to this difficult world we live in at this time. Our best wishes to you at this moment.
Sincerely, Dennis and Elizabeth
