I met Bob in 1972 when I joined the T. Eaton Co. at King and Water St. In Kitchener. We had many good times over the years at management meetings, socials and coffee breaks. We played on the Eaton fastball team as well as co managed when we couldn't keep up with the younger guys(at least I couldn't) and then we played on the coed slo pitch teams in the 80's. Bob was always fun to be around with his sense of humour and respect for others. He was also one of the best managers Eaton's ever had in Kitchener Waterloo or anywhere else. My deepest condolences to the family. Bob was one of the "good guys".
