Goodbye to a Good Friend - Rob Akerley

One of Graham's closest friends passed away Thursday, February 4. They have been buddies since they were teenagers, back in Port Alberni. We're shocked and saddened by Rob's passing.

Rob was an avid outdoorsman...he Loved Hunting and Fishing and hanging out in the woods.

Rob leaves behind two teenaged sons....Justin and Braden. He will be sorely missed.

At our Wedding....Don, (another really good friend of Graham and Rob), me, Graham and Rob

The Three Amigos....don't they look like fine upstanding men?

And...about 10 seconds after the previous pic was taken.
They were obviously faking it in the other picture.

Good times!

We'll miss you Rob!

Hi, I'm Rob's cousin (live in Alberta), my sister forwarded me your web site. It was great to see your kind words and pics! My brother and sister were born out your way, and lived in 70 mile house when they were very young.
