Robert’s love for family, quiet ways and sense of humor will always remain a part of his nieces’ and nephews’ fond memories of him along with family picnics and fishing trips at Cormorant Lake, helping can the garden harvest, and finishing a hard day on the farm with “barley pop”, Lipton soup and fresh homegrown strawberries and cream.
