Bob and Joan raised their family in Caledon East. Bob enjoyed watching his family grow; many great holiday celebrations were held with Bob and Joan at the family home. Bob worked as a milk tester, spending time with farmers in the area, finishing his career at Ken Speirs Orchards, where he had worked for many years. Bob loved coaching men’s and women’s baseball, and hockey, in Caledon East, Inglewood and Bolton and was also a baseball umpire. He spent some great days travelling and on the golf course with his best friends, Danny, Ronnie and Ray.
