Bob was a good talent I see, it was a loss. I’m sure the Observer will miss him.

Bob was an unusually talented observer of the Okanagan scene. His compassionate, warm sense of humour made him very popular. And he had a wicked, critical side when he wanted to. Little known fact, Bob used to share a studio with famed Expo artist Robert McIlhargey, who has also passed away.
Goodbye Bob, we’ll miss you.
