    Condolences to the family, I first met Bob when I was 17 and started at Cypress Equipment in Kamloops, my best memory…and the story Bob liked to share was him pulling up to the Kamloops Branch in the morning and watching this young guy (me) jumping my motorcycle off the loading ramp while waiting for the branch to open. He told me that story many times ! LOL. His son Tom and I became the best of friends along with Tom’s Family…. a friendship I will also have!
    Thanks for introducing me to your family Bob, you will be missed!
