We loved having Bob as part of our family after he and Regina Kelly were married. He was full of life, loved good food, good wine, spending time with family and friends, and traveling the globe. He became a much loved member of our family and we enjoyed his warm, caring nature and witty comments. Many bottles of wine were consumed over family dinners where we laughed and joked and appreciated his knowledge of wine and enjoyed his considerable cooking skills. His cannelloni was something magnificent. Bob was a man who was respected and liked by all and loved by those of us lucky enough to have him in our family, however briefly. We thank Leslie and the rest of the Bilodeau family for sharing this wonderful man with us. Thom and Sue Kelly
