Robert was an artist, displaying his work in their home; he designed the houses they lived in on Gabriola and Lake Cowichan, and he built several boats which he sailed obsessively. He was also a furniture builder and teacher, hunter and fisherman, and musician, playing the keyboard and singing with a Senior choir. He leaves many memories of their adventures with his best friend and wife Myrna and their friends.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
