Robert worked for 40 years in the logging industry. He started as a Boom Man and ended driving logging trucks, which he totally loved. He loved fishing, camping and spending time down the canal and his BULLDOGS, the local hockey team.
Robert will be sadly missed by all, especially his wife, with whom he ended each night with a kiss.
