Rob arrived in Kitimat as a beginning teacher in 1974, retired in 2010 after 36 years of service and raised a family of six children and eight grandchildren.
He was first elected to Kitimat Council in 2008 and has just finished his second term. Rob has been very active in his profession, his church and in community organizations over his forty years in Kitimat. He has served as the Chairperson of the Kitimat Health Advocacy Group for the past decade and takes keen interest in health, housing, planning and economic development issues as a Councillor.
When not working, Rob loves to spend time with his children and grandchildren (almost all of whom still live in Kitimat), gardening in his small backyard, visiting with friends and family around a backyard fire and keeping up a steady diet of daily reading.
