    Bob I have been looking for you in the last 20 years. I did not know that you move to BC. Now my friend you are gone. So I guess I will meeting you in twenty years. They say that true friends are like diamonds persous but rare, fall friends are like autumm leafs found everywhere. Good by my dear friend. Rest in peace.

  • Ron Beaupre says:

    I met Bob in 1962. I was trying to learn how to use a camera for the first time as a 12 year old. Bob taught me well and sold me my first real camera. Later he taught me how to run a dark room and how to enjoy playing chess. He had a great sense of humour. He went flying with me and my dad. When Dad (the pilot) said “Look Bob, Ron is flying the plane!”(I know nothing about take offs and landings) Bob replied: “Good, I feel better now!” Great friend and I will remember him always. My condolences to his brother Ed and his family. Rodney Webb wishes to send his condolences as well. We both have many of Bob’s photographs in our albums. Bob’s love of photography will live forever.

  • Camille Fischer says:

    My sincere sympathy goes out to Bob’s family. Bob came to our house in the old town of Iroquois many times regarding photography, which my father did also.

    Along with my wife Leslie, and my mother Shirley Kirkby Carnegie, I wish to pass along our sincere condolences to Ed and family.

    My condolences ED and family. Dont know if you remember me
    or not–my dad was HUBERT COULTER and we lived on the other side of the tracks from your family farm. Enjoyed BOBs company when he played in our cribbage league at the IROQUOIS LEGION.

    At this particular time, I am very saddened and teary-eyed as I remember my own relationship with Bob. I met him when I was 10 years old and my Father, Carl Van Camp was busy building our new house 2 doors down from Bob and his parents. They were my “other family”. Bob was so brilliant and extremely witty, a good friend and confidante. He told us jokes, played games with his teenage friends, let me, at 16 drive his fancy “new” car on highway 401 as fast as I could go. He never hesitated to drive us to Cornwall for a pizza (27 miles each way) just because we wanted one. All during High School, when he was Secretary, I would run every morning over to get a ride to school. Bob didn’t mind. I got to know the real person very well, not just what some people saw on the surface. I’ve been in contact with him the last 10 years by phone at least once a month. I will miss his jokes, his witty conversation, but mostly I will miss my dear and truly loved friend; Bob.

    Robert was an amazing person with a tremendous heart for those who had less than he did. He was a long-term member on the Board of Directors for a local non-profit and was a man who believed in the good work being done. His support was incredible and his presence was always uplifting. I dearly miss his hugs, his words of encouragement and his smile. I was sad to see this notification but I do know that Heaven has gained yet another angel.

    Rest in Peace Bob…know that you are missed and very dearly cherished!
