Bobby was born in Pincher Creek, Alberta on August 21st, 1930. Bobby’s family owned and operated the City Café for years on Main Street. Bobby spent time in the Canadian Army stationed in Ontario as a cook before moving to Lethbridge where he met the Love of his Life Susie. Bobby became a journeyman Plumber/Pipe Fitter working with the Lethbridge School Board and on some of Lethbridge’s most recognized buildings like the Sportsplex Sports and Entertainment Arena.
Bobby and Susie retired at the age of 55, and became the ultimate Snowbirds, living 6 months a year in Sunny Arizona, one of his lifelong dreams. They were graced with good health and spent 26 years enjoying retirement life south. Another one of Bobby’s favorite places was Kalispell, MT.
