  3. We are sorry to hear of Joanisse (Bob) passing. He will be forever remembered. I remember him as the police officer who would always stop to help & to make sure you were not getting into trouble He always made a point to nod his head to say hello. He often would stop & make sure I got home safe when it was late he would pull up beside me in his cop car & always ask if i was alright then he would tell me to hurry home because it was to late, to cold or worried about animals. I lived on Tamarack at the time. He always drove slowly with me in site until he could see that i had gotten home safely. At one point it became a routine. A silent conversation my parents looking out the window giving Joanisse a nod of apprval and apprecation begore he drove off. I know this is something my parents and i were grateful for, as a young girl walking late at night it was a little frightening but, Joanisse was there often to keep me from worrying. May you Rest in peace Bob.
