Rob’s top priority in life was his family. He was always concerned about the well-being of everyone else. He was selfless, giving to all, and always ready to give a caring shoulder to anyone. His wife, Doreen was the love of his life and best friend. Rob was so proud to call Doreen his wife. They had such a love story to remember. From high school sweethearts to reconnecting years later. They were graced with 22 wonderful years together. You would often see Rob and Doreen cruising around in their 94 Chevy Corvette (just the old Chevy). One of Rob’s favorite pastimes was going for rides with Doreen. They enjoyed almost every Sunday on the road. Rob loved the outdoors; from snowmobiling, fishing and taking the motorcycle out. Road trips to stay at Nestor Falls and five-dollar fishing bets, he almost always lost to Doreen. Rob was a hardworking man with the biggest heart. He worked many years on the rigs in Alberta. He worked hard at Cross Country Manufacturing in Morden for the last fifteen plus years. You could usually find Rob in the garage tinkering with whatever latest project he was working on, there was always something to keep him busy. Always busy. Rob was a Dad like no other. His children meant the world to him. He always time to listen and gave the best advice with meaningful words. He was incredibly wise. He would be there with a helping hand at any time. To teach the art of properly changing tires or vehicle maintenance. Rob always worried that the kids were ok and made sure that everything was. Rob had a huge heart for his grandkids. He was the BEST Papa! So proud of all the kids and ready to offer comfort and encouragement, even in his last days. Rob, you will be missed beyond measure, see ya later.
