Bob worked for National Grid as a safety trainer for many years where he made a lasting impression on all. He loved exploring with his wife Susan, who was his heart and soul. Bob brought happiness and laughter everywhere he went. He was a devout family man who relished in making his grandchildren smile. He will be greatly missed by all who had the opportunity to meet and share a laugh with him.
