Bob was born in Saskatchewan and left the province after graduating from the University of Saskatchewan. He worked as a Chemical Engineer for Shell Canada for 34 years in refining, oil, gas, oil sands, and environmental engineering. After retirement, Bob consulted in the oil industry for several years. Bob was active in parish life, including leading the Building Committee for a major church renovation (2001-2005), and serving in the St. Luke’s Parish Refugee Support Ministry for 30 years. Bob loved running, cycling, and camping with his beloved wife, especially across Alberta and Arizona. His favorite pastime was cutting trees with his many chainsaws.
