Bob joined Opti-Corps in 1955 and stayed with the Optimists until he aged out in 1961. In 156 Bob played Glockenspiel then, while in the Toronto Optimists, Bob played baritone. After leaving the corps he continued to satisfy his love of music by playing trombone in the Cathedral Bluffs Symphony Orchestra.
