Mrs. Fournier and Bob's family

The world has lost a GREAT man. Bob's kindness and dedication to community reach further than just his own community. His humour and smile will be missed by all the Low & District Lions members, and I personally will miss our bi-annual Lions Easter Bunny convos and pickup dates. He leaves a big impression on my heart, I can only imagine the hole left in the hearts of those who love him❤. Sincerest condolences to Kathy and family and thank you for sharing him with us.
