Bob grew up on the family farm at Roland. He was keenly interested in all farming projects and participated in community activities. Bob had a life-long love of and kindness to animals particularly dogs and horses. When the family farm was sold in 1945 Bob began working for Manitoba Hydro throughout Manitoba and later in Winnipeg until his retirement in 1982.
