Sorry to heard of the passing of Robert, we meet so many years ago, we had some wonderful times together at Elmvale, and at home. Robert would alway encourage a person to do there best, Robert would tell some wonderful stories of when he was a sailor, and was happy to say that he was in Belfast, Robert will be sadly missed by our family, prayers to the Goddard family

I had the good fortune of meeting Bob when I worked night shift at Chedoke Hospital. He was one of the finest people I ever met. He was working in Engineering if I remember correctly . He spoke highly of his family. I dropped in to wish congradulations at their 50th wedding anniversary celebration and that was the last time I saw Bob. RIP Bob for Heaven has surely gained a angel...You were such a good soul...
