He was a long time member of the Windsor Motorcycling Club and the Moose Lodge as well as a member of the River Road Riders. Bob loved the slots at the Casino, the Backroad Café, and homemade apple pie. He had a vast knowledge of many things and was happy to tell you the right way to do any task. His family will remember motorcycle rides, trips for ice cream, and his sense of humour.
