Tucker and I worked together for many tears at hostess. We both worked the northside, he spent many lunch hours at my home so my family got to know him quite well, company road trips to Halifax led to many good times and laughs. I am proud to have called him a friend. He was certainly one of the good guys. I extend our deepest sympathies to his family and friends

I knew Robert through his association with my sister-in-law, Joyce Keating MacDonald. He was often present at our home in Coxheath and our bungalow on the Mira. Even after Robert and Joyce stopped hanging out together, Robert continued to always be friendly and receptive. He was ALWAYS interested in knowing how each member of our family was doing. He was always ready to help anyone. I got introduced to his partner Diane and always enjoyed meeting up with the 2 of them at various venues. Sincere sympathy- the earth has lost a gentle and kind soul!! Cheers to Robert from Francine!!
