  • I first met Bob working together in Steinbach at Hydro but his first love was being a firefighter. I next met him and Val as newlyweds in Transcona and became long time friends. Valerie, stay strong and lean on those loved ones around you. And rest easy my friend. - Posted by: Joe Maloney (Friend) on: Dec 01, 2022

  • I first met Bob when we worked together in Steinbach with Hydro before he went on to become a firefighter. I subsequently met up with him again in Transcona plus becoming friends with brothers David and Bill. He was good friend and fiercely proud of his choice of vocation Knowing his delicate health I was still shocked. Val, May you find comfort with you family and siblings and rest easy my friend. - Posted by: Joe Maloney (Friend and one time co-worker) on: Dec 01, 2022

  • Bob was a great guy and a charm to work with. Great driver and kept his guys on the back, on the pump even in downtown traffic. Working in Transcona with him and Mike and Murray and Tom was a treat. There wasn't anywhere we couldn't go. Bob was always smiling or had a pleasant look about him. He will always bring a smile to my mind when I think of him. Blessings to the Glover and Vallis families. Big hugs Val. - Posted by: mike robson (friend and firefighter) on: Nov 07, 2022

Sandy and I very much appreciated Bob making time for a Timmies coffee, a breakfast at the Seine river Cafe or simply a phone visit.
