Bob was a truck driver and dispatcher for Connors Transfer for 18 years until illness forced him into early retirement. He was a walking phone directory and could direct the drivers to the right door to deliver their loads to anywhere in North America day and night while dispatching.
Bobby liked everything about food. His TV was always tuned to the cooking channels; he was a very good cook and baker and always got food donated for Church camps and the Shepherd’s Lunch Soup Kitchen. He has a turkey ordered for our family Christmas dinner this year.
The family would like to thank the VON for their constant good care, Dr. Park, the palliative care doctor and nurses, the Aberdeen ER, the EHS, the air ambulance and the heart and diabetes doctors at the QE2, Yvonne and Drew who learned so much about caring for Bobby, his sister, Faye and brother, Dan, who visited every day, Pastors Bruce and Marlene Morrison and the prayer team at Christian Fellowship Church, and Connors Transfer for their support, and the many visitors and phone calls he enjoyed over the last years.
Visitation will be on Saturday, November 9, from 1:00 to 3:00 at Christian Fellowship Church on Abercrombie Road followed by the funeral service at 3pm with a reception to follow.
