Bob started his career working for the Ontario Provincial Police and then transferring to the Office of the Fire Marshall and retiring in 2007.  Shortly after retiring he became a Northern Ontario Regional Sales Manager for Fort Garry Fire Trucks, where he and Dorothy through this employment feel Rick and Marty Suche and all of Fort Garry became like family.

In his spare time, he enjoyed working in his shed puttering around and working in the back yard. In his early years he enjoyed his golfing trips away with his buddies and loved to travel to his favourite place in Boynton Beach, Florida.

As per Bob’s wishes there will be no service.

7 Condolences

  1. My condolences to the Lock Family. I just heard of Bob’s passing, and although I did not know him well or for long, I had worked with him over the past few years through some fire truck purchases at Fort Garry Fire Trucks, and much enjoyed our chats. Unfortunately I never had the chance to meet him in person during that time. A wonderful guy to deal with and he will be missed. Chris Rohr
