    I met Bob back in the 1960,s when we both worked for Farm Credit. When we were called to Regina as LRO’s we were in the same car pool for eleven years. Bob was a great fellow to work with. Always looked on the bright side of things and always had a ready chuckle. When Bob moved to Kelowna we kept in touch by phone until his hearing was so poor. Bob and I were the only two left from the car pool. He will be missed. My sincere condolences to the family. Mason
