Fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Bob was employed by Robb Engineering in Amherst, Nova Scotia for 37 years and retired in 1993. He and Shirley spent winters in Panama City Beach, Florida where they made many lifelong friendships. He was an avid golfer, a car enthusiast and was well known for giving the best hugs.
