Bob, came to Oliver in 1960 with his wife Arvie and a young family. He helped design the new (Industrial Education) shops at Southern Okanagan High School where he work for most of his life. In 1978 – the couple left Oliver and settled in Germany for 4 years on an exchange program but came right back to Oliver.
When the kids were grown Arvie got into the Flower Shop business at the Mall. Both have been very involved curlers. Bob served two terms on town council and the couple have been active volunteers and good citizens for their time with us. The list is too long to mention everything that this couple has been involved with. Just weeks ago – Arvie was involved in helping the the Arts Council parade entry.
They will be missed.
But Bob and Arvie are here until the end of October. Take the time to say “Good bye”
