Bob Stone, a well-known and highly respected former resident of Thornhill, passed away on July 14th at the Rouge Valley Centenary Hospital in Toronto. Bob and Edie moved to Cricklewood in 1982 and stayed until Bob’s retirement in 1994, when they moved to their cottage in Gravenhurst. Edie spent a number of years on our Newcomers’ executive, and Bob was very involved as well. He was on the Men’s BBQ planning committee for many years and an enthusiastic participant of the Couples Dinner Group and the Theatre Group. He started the Men’s Investment Club, Pegasus, in April 1984 and was its first President, 1984-1985. Through the following years, he held many other positions on the Executive, as well as hosting (over a ten-year period) the September annual Investment Club Retreat and Golf Tournament at the Quarry. This event was looked forward to and enjoyed immensely by the members. Bob will be missed by all of us who knew him and our sympathy goes out to Edie, still an active member of Thornhill Newcomers.
