A lifelong resident of Dominion, Robert was a kind and generous soul who never missed an opportunity to share a hot pot of tea and the latest joke. Robert’s love for the Boston Bruins, darts, bowling, and classic rock music was only surpassed by that of his passion for his family and friends. Robert was proud of his associations with the Dominion Hawks Club and the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 78, Dominion.

Pack my bag and let’s get moving
‘Cause I’m bound to drift awhile
Though I’m gone, gone
You don’t have to worry
Long as I can see the light.
