Here they raised their family and made lifelong friends and memories. Bob competed in many sports and from those acquired a few nicknames. Baseball (Sniff) and curling (Boomer). He also loved the poems by Robert Service.
“There’s a land where the mountains are nameless, And the rivers all run God knows where; There are lives that are erring and aimless, And deaths that just hang by a hair; There are hardships that nobody reckons; There are valleys unpeopled and still; There’s a land – oh, it beckons and beckons, And I want to go back and I will.”
Rest in Peace Dad until we meet again.
