  6. Dear Jean and Family,
    It has been my great pleasure to have been one of Bob’s golfing buddies for the past 10 yrs. I can’t tell you all how much he will be missed; he was a true gentleman with the emphasis

  7. I just wanted to let you all know how much Mr. Clark was loved by everyone on 2300 unit. His life and passing was something we would all talk about. ‘ how is Mr. Clark today,’ was a daily question each shift. He was always so genuine, sincere, and thankful. To see the love in the family is something else, that touches our hearts, and that was truly seen in your family. In our profession we see many deaths, few bring us to tears. Your a fortunate family, and please know we truly cared for the man we really never knew.
    My deepest sorrow, Doreen RN (2300)

  8. I just wanted to send my deepest condolences to Bob’s wife Jean and their family. I have read his postings in the Sunnygovan site about his struggle with cancer. Rest in peace Bob. Regards, Dorothy Ont. Canada

  9. I will think of Bob every time I tee off anywhere. He brought determination, skill, nerve and above all else, fun to every game I played with him. It was my privilege to have known him as a fellow golfer and a friend.

    We will miss him, but somehow I know we’ll always have a fifth person with our foursome.

    Thanks for the memories Bob.

  10. Jean and family just want you to know that Bob came into all our lives just about 2 years ago and he touched everybody with his humour and great messages on ‘Sunnygovan’ he will not be forgotten believe me.
    I have you in my prayers and thoughts.

    Yours Lorna Bibeau.

  11. Lesley: So sorry to hear about your father. I wanted to come to the calling hours, but I’ve been sick with bronchitis and a ruptured eardrum since Monday and didn’t think I should take the chance on going out. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Stay strong. Hope all is well with you and your family. Take care.

  12. Our thoughts are with you & your family dear Jean .
    I am sure Bill will now be pain free & watching over you and guiding you in the right direction.

    RIP Bill
