On behalf of all residents of the Town of New Wes Valley, i wish to extend sincere condolences to the family of Robert “Bob” Green . An outstanding individual who spent his life as a business man . Always there to help anyone any way he could. Always had a smile for everyone as well a little joke to tell . He was surely missed when he moved to St. Johns a few years ago, but will truly be missed now that he has passed. Bob was ” one of a kind” but was one of us. Rest in Peace “Bobby”.

Our hearts are saddened to hear about the passing of our friend Bob Green.. He was a real charmer and everyone who knew him had a story. After he and Anne moved to St. John’s, there was a missing link in this area. Many time while we were living in town, we would always run into Bob at the Avalon Mall and would always take us aside and say, well now Mr H, “did you hear this one” and laughter would always end of our day.
Our condolences to Ann, Sandra, Marie and all the family. Rest in Peace Bobby Green

To the Green family
Please accept my sincere condolences. I met Mr Green at the hospital when his mother was in and my mother in law was in hospital. Their rooms were across the hall from each other and we had many chats during those many hours spent visiting.
He was quite the movie buff and recommended many good movies for me to watch. Such a lovely man. May all the good memories you have shared support and comfort you at this time.
God bless.

My deepest condolences to the Green family. I had the pleasure of working with Bob at Canadian Blood Services. Such a delightful man to be around. He always had a joke for me. Heaven has definitely gained another angel. RIP Bob.

I only got to know Bob over the past few years. We were part of the corner crowd at Tims, and I always looked forward to spending time with him. There was affection and a connection that comes when two non-townies unite. I loved our conversations, his funny stories and tales of sailing ships blown off course, and famous sea going Captains. Bob was a true gentleman and I’ll miss him.

Anne and family ,sorry to hear of Bobs passing .Bob was such a fine man ,If you needed a laugh all you had to to do was go to Bob Greens store . What i remember about Bob is he always did what he could to help people out .we have lots of good memories of Bob . Rest in Peace Sir .

Green and Wright families
Sorry to hear of Bob’s passing.
I am one of a cluster of his buddies who shares the last week of MAY 21ST 26th and 29th to have birthdays.
Memories run deep as i reflect on our childhood days playing hockey, soccer, swimming on big sandy beach.
Biking to Wesleyville on Sunday afternoons to trade Western comic books.
It was the writing of our final CHE exams at Badgers Quay suf hall when we parted company.
The class of 55 had it’s dream.
We did ,however, keep in touch due to the efforts of our veteran news anchor (L. H.) who was always very iinformative.
R.I.P. Bob

Lloyd and I have known Bob and the Green family for almost 60 years . Roberta met him first when Marie invited three close university friends to her Valleyfield home for a “sleep over “ upon the completion of our first year of studies.

Bob knew how to make everyone feel special , using his warm smile and quick wit to brighten an ordinary day .
A visit to Greens ‘ shop was always on our itinerary whenever we travelled back home to Newtown. Many funny stories are retold by Lloyd with the preface : This is one of Bob Green’s jokes.

Bob you will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Roberta and Lloyd Gill

Clyde/Shirley Parsons

Annie, Marie-Beth and family,
Saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. . Memories of going to the store, and his always knowing what Aunt Margaret wanted ! He always used to say ‘ if he didn’t have it, you didn’t need it ‘! I always remember him driving us to school in Wesleyville – thanks for that.
Condolences to you all at this time from myself and Alwyn.

Annie and family, sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. Sending my sincere condolences to you during this difficult time.

To the Green family: first got to meet Bob many years ago, he had done a few elections (both Provincial and Federal) election days over at the St. Pius X hall. He was the hall supervisor of the hall. We struck it off and quickly became friends getting together for a coffee. I would see him in the Avalon Mall going off to a movie, he’d stop and have a quick chat and say he waw “off to see a movie”. Every now and then my father and myself would run into him at Wal-Mart on Stavanger Drive area and always greeted us with a smile and a hug. A truly remarkable man. Enjoyed the chats I had with him and the memory of him will live in my heart forever.

Bill Taylor

So sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I used to frequent Bob’s store in Valleyfield in the early 80s, while posted at Wesleyville. I always looked forward to a yarn with Bob and I knew there would always be a ‘side splitting’ story. A great man with a great personality, and for sure a great since of humor. Sincere condolences.
