Bob Gentles passes on

Postby The Dieselduck » Thu Jun 25, 2009 1:00 pm

It is with regret to advise you, that Bob Gentles passed away yesterday, after a two year battle with mesothelioma. Bob started with BC Ferries in March, 1974 and retired from his position as Engineering Superintendent in March, 1997.

There will be no funeral service but a function for friends and shipmates is being planned by the family. Further details will follow.

Please join me in sending condolences to Bob's family.

Bob will be remembered by the membership of the Vancouver Island Branch as one of the key organizers of the annual up island meetings up until last year. I did not know Bob well, but I really liked him as he was always such a nice guy.
