Bob Strong was a man who loved and cared for animals, especially his long time friend, Lucy (his German Shepherd) and his cat Max. He had high energy for his work and life. He also had the unique ability to do things with ease, bring out the best of those around him, and always remained positive in life. He was dearly loved by his families and friends from every walk of life. He was known for his generous heart and willingness to help others during their time of need. There will be a celebration of Bob's life in First United Church on Prince Street, Truro, on Wednesday, May 23 at 2 p.m. In honor of Bob, and who he was, we ask that you do an "act of kindness", for another person.
