Robert is a friendly man who admittedly has the gift of gab! He was born and raised in Winnipeg and started to come to Siloam Mission 10 years ago – he walked from Maryland Street for a meal. He previously lived in a place where there were bed bugs and people who were involved in illegal activities. Robert got involved in Transition Services and he can’t say enough about the staff that helped him get together new identification (which was lost) and helped him find a place to live for people over the age of 55. Robert loves to read books – particularly loves stories that take place in 1850’s England. In fact he reads a book every three days and makes regular visits to the library. Robert has health issues – COPD from smoking and a year ago he spent 21 days in the hospital with pneumonia. He credits the staff at Siloam for saving his life – as they called an ambulance when they noticed his illness. A favourite childhood memory is visiting his Baba by the train in Saskatchewan – all by himself every summer from the age of 6 to the age of 14. Robert has 4 children – 2 girls and 2 boys and seeing them happy brings him joy. His eldest daughter lives in Ottawa with her husband and kids – Robert’s dream would be to visit them by train. He would love to give the gift of a cooking lesson to patrons of Siloam Mission.
