Rob was well known in his community as a generous man who always had a story. He had an amazing sense of humour and wasn’t scared to tell you what was on his mind. He loved his dogs Baxter & Sheba but his greatest love was for his family and friends. He liked family trips with his kids and going to the casino with Christine. He spent time with Mike out in the bush cutting wood and everyone will always remember chicken killin Sundays. He enjoyed going to the grocery store always making sure he knew what was on special. He loved being outside in his vegetable garden, sharing his bounty and making his Hun do the canning. Rob farmed for a large portion of his life and worked as a feed mill operator in the area. He was the life of the party according to his friends and lived his best life all the time.
