BROWN FUNERAL HOME, Stoney Creek.

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds—and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of—wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
I’ve chased the shouting wind along and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up along, delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,
Where never lark or even eagle, flew;
And, while with silent, lifting mind
I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

A special thank you to Dr. Potter and all the wonderful staff at Extendicare who helped make his last month’s happy and comfortable. Bob was a Veteran of W.W. II, and served overseas in the Signal Corp. He was a 34 year employee of Dominion Dairies, Sealtest, and a mentor, teacher to many Amateur Radio Operators. Bob will be remembered for his loving kindness, his humour, his corny jokes, his warm smile, his ability to talk to anyone and that devilish twinkle in his eyes. Bob was a deeply spiritual man who always said: “I know who’s hand I hold.” Well done thy good and faithful servant. At Bob’s request there will be no service. Cremation has taken place. This is VE3CIB – over and out
