I was a younger cousin of Bobby’s. He was a close family member. Not only did he work with my Dad in the shoe repair store but when we were younger we both lived on McIntosh Street in Haney a few houses from each other. Bobby and his brother Andy shared a bedroom in the attic of their house. Entered into by a ladder. Fascinating for a pesty younger cousin. Bobby was a gifted artist. His paintings of cartoon characters were greatly treasured. I spent more time at his place than mine. Auntie Nancy was a fabulous cook. No one ever made better short cake than she did. And when Uncle Andy wanted some peace and quiet he would play the bagpipes indoors and we would all scatter. They were many family get-togethers held at their home with numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. I shall miss him a lot.

I was friends with Bobby all of my life. He was my godfather and cousin. He was apart of my family's life as he worked for my father for nearly 40 years at Bob's Shoe Repair. But the best times spent with him were on fishing trips to the interior; Fountain Lake, Salmon Lake & steelhead fishing on the Thompson River. He grew up in Haney when it was a small place, so he knew almost everyone. So there were endless stories about local people and incidents that colored their lives. He had a sharp sense of humour & could tell a joke better than anyone I've met in my life. Every summer he would go to the Peach Festival in Penticton for holidays. Alone for some time, I was happy that he met Loie, his wife, later in life. Her death was hard on him. He would tell anyone who listened that he never thought he would live for so long. I loved him & I'm saddened that he is gone.

Rest In Peace, Bobby

I have many funny and great memories of Bobby. I spent many hours with my dad and Bobby at my dad’s shop when I was young. I would work the counter because Bobby didn’t want to be interrupted while working. He would tell me stories and jokes. He was a big part of my life growing up.
Rest In Peace Bobby
