Robert and Dorothy had 3 children, Faye, Murray and Donna. Robert lived on the family farm for 87 years. He and Dorothy moved to the Hanna Lodge in February of 2011. Robert was inquisitive and liked the challenge of learning. Robert was determined and optimistic. If he was told it couldn’t be done he would set out to prove otherwise. Robert loved music and played the accordion and piano. Robert was a avid sports fan, never missing a curling, hockey or baseball game. Towards the end of Robert’s life it was very difficult for our family to watch him struggle. He always remained strong and optimistic and this is how our family will remember him.
