To Bob’s family . I would like to express sincere condolences . I first met Bob through my late father Allan Rathbone at Tim Horton’s . Bob became a welcome addition to a trio of of WWII veterans who met each afternoon to solve the worlds problems .
Bob was always very respectful to my father in particular and I personally very much appreciated that.

May Bob Rest in Peace

Sincerely Judy ( Rathbone ) Watson

Our Father was a fighter until the end, strongest man we know and although unfortunate circumstances took him way too soon his story will forever be remembered.
We were fortunate to have a loving Dad that was always there for us whenever we needed. He often had a case of FOMO (fear of missing out), he loved to hang with us daughters and enjoyed family events full of food and fun.
He liked going to the grand kids sporting events, often had a pocket of toonies for each score/goal!

The 6 months was an emotional roller coaster for us but we are proud of the significant changes within Healthcare that our fathers story (and us) achieved. That also gives us a sense of peace knowing many lives have been saved or changed thanks to all the awareness/support.

We miss you already Dad, we will toast you at every family event with your favorite red wine and never forgotten...
