Bob then found his entrepreneurial spirit and he and his first wife Penny became business owners of the John Deere Dealership in Beausejour, Manitoba (78-86) Bob returned with the family to London Ontario, working in several positions in renovations and sale. Life took a few turns, and he ended his working career as a Correctional Officer at Elgin Middlesex where he met his second wife Evelyn.
