Bob will be missed on his front porch at Byron and Athlone…..

3 09 2013

Most people in Westboro are familiar with Bob, a gentleman who sat on his front porch at the corner of Athlone and Byron.  He passed peacefully in hospital on Thursday, August 22, 2013 in his 90th year.


He was a kind man with endearing stories that many have seen, waved to or befriended.  Bob was a fixture in the ‘hood and will be missed.  May he rest in peace.

Please refer to the link below for Robert Young’s obituary:

Our world needs more like Bob, a neighborhood treasure. I have nothing but admiration for his impact on the world around him.

Thanks for posting this WCA – Bob was one of those fascinating “people in our neighbourhood” that we all learned from.
