- 53, Greenfield Hills, passed away May 16, 2007, in the VG site, QEII in Halifax, with his loving wife by his side, following a courageous battle with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. He is survived by his devoted wife Nancy (Whidden) Strong, her parents Sterling and Eleanor Whidden, and his brother-in-law, Fred Whidden of Greenfield.

Born in St. John's Newfoundland, he is also survived by his parents Watson Strong and Rose (Clouter) Strong and his grandmother, Juanita Clouter, Clarenville N.L.

Bob went to Dartmouth High School and later studied at DeVry Technical Institute in Toronto, and graduated in 1982. He served in the Air Force branch of the Canadian Armed Forces as lieutenant and training officer in Lingan, Sydney, Nova Scotia, where he started his married life.

Bob took the "road less traveled" and became an entrepreneur founding "Greenfiled Contracting". Using the tools he loved to build business, he enjoyed many successes as he would present a family their "dream home" with their turn key. His creative and constructing talents can be witnessed by viewing any of the homes he designed, built or crafted. He was the land developer of Greenfield Hills. He was a member of the Home Builders Association of Nova Scotia. Bob received special recognition for his talents in renovation of century-old homes. He had a great appreciation for architecture both contemporary and past. Bob's ability was recognized nationally by East Coast Magazine and in his daily interactions with those around him. He had great passion for the work he did.

He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed skiing, cycling, and gardening. He also enjoyed reading and touring in his little car with his wife. He was a "lover of the land", especially the Greenfield landscapes and the ocean. Traveling was also a passion of Bob's, with his life partner Nancy. They enjoyed not only the views, but the people they met along the way.

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.
