(July 9, 1963 – April 1, 2019)

Sorry that this thank you has been so long coming. I would seriously think about it every Monday night around 10pm or every Thursday when it was delivered in the mail box, being too late to get it in the paper yet once again. I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of all our families to say thank you to all family and our great community of friends of us all for all the help, visits, hugs, incredible food and love especially when I was on my way back from England on a plane that couldn’t go fast enough and the week before the service. You all know who you are. Thank you to the OPP officers who responded that night as well as David Goodfellow and staff for their compassion and caring ways in time of need that night and over the next few days. I just can not say enough to all the friends, relatives, fellow coworkers and past employers who came on April 7th to pay their respects to Rob. Thank you to all who made donations to Mental Health and Addictions as well as Children’s Services and for the beautiful flower arrangements all from Rimpy at Goodfellow’s Flowers except for one. The Dorito and coke guy would be happy with that. Rob could fix anything and always had a junk pile of treasures for this purpose. He was a big guy with many names from Fergie, Ferg, Bob, Q-Tip and others Iike Crusty the Clown when he needed a hair cut in later years not that he cared what you called him. He is greatly missed as a husband, dad, grandpa, son, brother and friend by us all but has left us with lots of crazy stories, laughs and tears at times too. Please as a legacy to Rob talk about anxiety, depression, paranoia and inner turmoil and don’t cover it up with silence, drugs and alcohol. Take away the stigma of Mental Health issues for all.
