Robert was raised on a ranch east of Warner. He moved to the farm in Fort Macleod with his sweetheart Eleanor in 1966 where they raised their seven children and have remained since for a total of 54 years. Bob was known for his mechanical skills, inventiveness, sense of adventure, camping, driving school bus, scouting and many more pursuits.  Bob was always quick to help and lend a hand. He had a contagious smile and twinkle in his eye. He loved serving in the temple and was anxious to get back to work as soon as he could. He worked hard, played harder, and always made sure that there were good times to be had when he was around. Of all his accomplishments, he was proudest of his children, and never missed an opportunity to brag about his posterity. He is beloved by family and friends and touched the lives of all he encountered.

A private family service was held on Tuesday, Aug. 11, 2020, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Fort Macleod. Please go to or https://youtube/JQM99pdlgr0 to watch the live-streamed service.
