Bob was a loving and wonderful husband; father, brother, brother-in-law and friend. Everyone who knew Bob will understand how much his radiant smile, keen sense of humour, love of animals and kindness will be missed. Bob will be lovingly remembered by his beloved wife, Joan of 50 years, his devoted children Jay (Jackie) and Lee. Bob will be sadly missed by his extended family Joyce (Rhoney) Gordon; June (Don) Grahame and the late Jimmy (Norma) Lawrenson and many cherished nieces and nephews and their children.
