Thursday, April 19, 2018I am sure Rob will be missed but we should celebrate the rich life he lived and the positive experience he brought to our lives. I was just out of school when I met Rob in 1993. He asked me to accept a 6 week secondment from Mercer to the United Way to help with fund raising. I regularly saw Rob at actuarial events and had the good fortune to be reunited with him in 2012 on a volunteer committee working with the pension plan for the United Church of Canada. Rob was always working to help others. I will always admire his enthusiasm and giving nature.

Thursday, April 19, 2018I served on Council of the of the CIA while Rob was President. I consider that as having been a privilege. Rob had a lot of good ideas and was very effective at getting them implemented. He represented the Institute very well. I also have good memories of him coming to visit my family in Mont-Tremblant while he was on a skiing vacation. Please accept condolences of my wife Marie and myself.

Sunday, April 15, 2018Rob and I were fraternity brothers through the same years at UofT(1946-50). We were always delighted to see each other at Monday Night Club and more unplanned occasions down the years. He was a valued member of the Pension Board at the United Church of Canada. Highly respected for his professional achievements and advice, Rob also had a warm and understanding heart. He was a good llstener; he "paid attention". His open face and ready smile reflected who he really was. He was God's good man. We miss just knowing he was there, and will always be grateful for the blessing of his life. Bruce McLeod, Former United Church Moderator

Saturday, April 14, 2018I offer my sincere condolences to the family on the passing of Rob, and to express my admiration for his life and his character. As a young actuary, I admired Rob's immense contributions to the actuarial profession in Canada. He was a true role model - articulate, thoughtful, persuasive and collaborative. During my early years in consulting and then life insurance company management, I enjoyed many interactions with Rob. He was always one of those individuals who gave energy to those he met and influenced. His was a life well lived.

Friday, April 13, 2018Robert was a very dear friend of my father, Charles Galloway. I had the pleasure of meeting him in January of this year at my Mother's funeral. He was such a warm and charming man. I know that my father will miss his company greatly. Currently my father is in the hospital recovering from a hip fracture. One of his major concerns while he has been there was to contact Robert. I wish he had had that opportunity. I am so sorry for your loss.
