Bob worked at Canada Safeway warehouse, starting in the boxcars and worked his way up to management, retiring after 31 years. He enjoyed his cabin at Glimpse Lake and his holidays at Maili Cove, Hawaii. Bob was a “Gawd Dam” good crib player and will be dearly missed by all.

Whenever we parted, Dad would always say,
“Mind as you go now.”

From: Holger R. Herrmann
Relation: Worked with him.

It is always hard to put into words what one feels at a time like this. To Bob’s family I wish to say, Bob was fairly easy to work with even though his nickname was “Bear”. The only time that I actually saw this “Bear” was when he was quiting smoking or when we blew our budget.
My sincere Condolences to the Graham Family.

From: Claudia Monsma (Lonsdale)
Relation: Cousin

Even though we haven’t visited these last years, I always knew Bob was out there. So sorry to hear of his passing. We had a lot of fun in our younger years, played a lot of cards, and sometimes we would let the guys win, right Marilyn?

From: lorne and Judy Briggs
Relation: Friend,but never forgotten

Marilyn and family, So sorry to here about your loss, Lorne and I send you our deepest sympathy and hope your memories will help carry you through this sad time.
Thinking of you, Lorne and Judy

From: Dianne & Linton Harris
Relation: Good Friend

We will so miss you Bob, but someday we’ll meet again and then Lint can “come out to play”. We love you!

From: Jim Hunter
Relation: Working relationship with Safeway

To Marilyn & family deepest sympathy in your loss, cherish the many memories and good times you enjoyed as a family. Bob was a good friend and mentor to myself during my working relationship with Him as well as during our retirement years. Although He was called the “Bear” His growl was much louder than His bite. Will miss you Bob,take care….Jim
