An unapologetic logger, Bob started his career at 14 for Burns and Jackson, he worked in various logging camps all up and down the coast, finally settling in Port McNeill. In the twilight of his working life he decided to form his own logging truck contracting business, because he wanted to be with the “boys” in the “bush”. He spent many years in Holberg driving his Kenworth “fat truck”. When he retired, he and Lorraine bought their piece of the Cariboo, a cabin on the shore of Rail Lake, where he enjoyed the last years of his life making many new friends. Bob was an avid sports fan, playing softball all over the coast, but his true addiction was hockey. He was a player and a coach of both minor and junior hockey. He was a dedicated Canucks fan thru thick and thin. His new passion was snowmobiling and he tried to convert all his friends and relatives to his new sport.
