Amy, Jane, Cory and Sean, my sincerest condolences for the loss of your father. I have nothing but great memories of Bobby. He was so loving and caring, I don't think there was a time he would call Amy when I was there that he didn't ask how I was doing and wanted to know what I was up to. He loved to make jokes but loved nothing more than his kids and grandchildren and he always showed. He will be missed.

My sincere condolences to Bobby's family. We go back to early Van Horne School and Van Horne Park days. Bobby's outgoing personality and kindness was evident as young kids. When we played hockey in the park I remember him wearing a wool red tuque with a long pompom flopping around. I also recall eating lunch with Bobby at the counter in Podlog's Pharmacy. Nobody could devour two or three hot dogs faster than him. Over the years we would run into each other from time to time. It was always great to catch up.

Dear Myron, and all of his Children and Grandchildren, My heart aches on the passing of my childhood friend. We met back in 1960 at Laurentian Lanes. We both spent countless times together bowling and then traveling to Drag Races. At Napierville, he would get into the trunk or climb a fence to get in without paying. We had a very close connection and and I am so sad knowing he passed way to soon. He did not have a bad word to say about anyone and built friendships on his honesty and his wit. He had an infectious laugh to go along with his smile. I will cherish the memories we shared and the fun we had. He was a true gentleman and set an example for us all who knew him. My heartfelt condolences to his entire family. Rest in peace my friend, you will be missed

i was so saddened to hear about bobby. he was my neighbour#701. he always was so funny with his humor. when he had his cataracts done he knocked on my door at 11pm to see if his eye was infected. too funny! he always spoke of his chidren and grandchidren. i was holding his gazettes for when he would return. it was very emotional for me when i brought them down to recycle. i will definitely miss him.

Dear family, So many people have posted on FB and Paperman’s and I’m sure everyone has a Bobby story. He was loved by all and he loved everybody. Not a mean bone in his body.

He loved you dearly and you were blessed to have him.

I want to express my condolences to Bobby’s children , Sean and everyone who was touched by Bobby ‘s magic joy of life. And is love of baseball. We were baseball parents together cheering our boys on, often playing on opposing teams. Didn’t matter... a good hit was a good hit. He could put more sunflower seeds in his mouth at one time than anyone I knew. And I seem to remember he spat out only the shells... Bobby was one of the good guys .

Dear Cory and families - I've known Bobby for a long time through my late husband, Marvin, and my son, Eric. Coincidentally, I ended up moving into the building where he lived. He always cheered me up when I saw him. The usual conversation was where he was going to eat now. Will miss seeing him in the lobby when I go to check my mail. RIP, Bobby. To the family, be strong and stay safe. May all your wonderful memories help through this difficult time. My thoughts are with all of you.

Taken too soon, r.i.p. Bobby...

Such sad sad news. Brian grew up with Bobby in St. Laurent. I got to know Bobby from hanging around the St. Louis Shopping centre and Stan’s, as a teenager. Then, we raised our kids in Hampstead so we would see each other on the street or in the park. We were also kind of related through the Hoffmans so family events. It was always a pleasure seeing Bobby. He was always so warm and friendly. Know that you are all in our hearts and thoughts. Enjoy your memories.
