Growing up in Moose Jaw, he went to Empire School, and attended high school at Central Collegiate. After high school, Bob worked for the City of Moose Jaw, but started farming south of Moose Jaw by the late 50’s. Although he was primarily a grain farmer, he also raised chickens and turkeys. An entrepreneur at heart, he started a real estate company in the 70’s called Green Acre Investments and owned many town homes and rental properties. He was known for making it possible for many young families to get their start and into a home by holding the mortgage for them. He was very supportive of the 4H Clubs helping them to raise finances by sponsoring many horse shows over the years. He was a very social person, loved to dance and was a fixture at many of the fall suppers. He was a progressive thinker with a passion for books having a library named after him in Alberta in recognition for his support. He was generous to many organizations, churches and individuals in the community and could be counted on for support. He will be greatly missed by his nieces, nephews, numerous friends, and the community. Bob’s family would like to thank Art Clermont for his friendship and care of Bob over the years.
