Bob passed away on August 14, 2017 with dignity and respect. Bob was a part of the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals and was a member of the Vimy Band, Air Transport Command Band and CFB Chilliwack Band. After a 30 year career in the military, Bob was involved in developing the LaSalle Seniors’ Band and was a charter member of the LaSalle Causeway Swing Band.

He is survived by his partner Cori, his son Mark and Daughter Michelle and many grandchildren and great grands. He is predeceased by daughter Monica and son Michael. So many thanks to the fantastic palliative team at Providence Care Hospital.
