Born and raised in Winnipeg with his two Sisters, Arbutus and Marjorie, Bob moved to the Trail area after serving in the Air Force during the Second World War. In trail, Bob worked for Cominco as a Millwright and married Irene Besso, shortly after the war ended. While in Trail, Bob and Irene had two children, Susan and Brad.

In 1970, Bob moved to Kamloops to become the Maintenance Superintendent of a brand new Lafarge Cement plant. Bob continued to live and work in the Kamloops area until his retirement in 1987.

Bob and Faye remained happily married up until his passing.
