A celebration of life will be held in the Spring of 2023.
Bob loved living on the “farm” and running Swinging R Ranch. At one time or other, there were cows, chickens, horses, pigs, goats, sheep, dogs and cats, also u-pick blueberries, raspberries and a vegetable garden, and lots of canning and preserving that has been handed down throughout the family. The Swinging R legacy will continue to carry on.
Bob was known as “Grandpa” by his grandchildren, great-grandchildren and their individual friends, to his children and their friends he was “Dad” and also “Farmer Bob” to a multitude.
Everyone who met him would remark to one of the family: “I want him”, or “I want to be just like him at that age”, or “No way he’s out tractoring, hammering, fixing, repairing … “. We all nodded and said we were happy to share him.
He was very loved and touched many lives. He will be greatly missed.
