Sherrie GlanvilleJohn, Judy, Sharon and all the grandchildren. You were his life, the love of his family and friends was overwhelming. In all the years Ive known him, I cannot recall a single moment where he raised his voice or complained about anything. The impact he made on my life is tremendous as I am certain others will say the same. I have never known a kinder, gentler man. Those traits are in each of you. My heart is with each and everyone of you as you face the difficult days ahead. My sincere sympathies to all. I am only a phone call away. Dad, give mom a hug for me. Love Sherrie
Elaine & Mike NolanOur condolences to all of you. I am sure Bob will be greatly missed. He and Helen were our neighbours on Lyman for many years and we had many a great chat. Family was everything to both your folks and they always spoke proudly of all your accomplishments. May your memories sustain you in the coming days.
