I was saddened to hear of the Passing On of Mr. Wilson. I was a student at City Park Collegiate where Mr. Wilson was the student councillor. He was always approachable and easy to talk to. In later years I would run in to him at St. Stephen's Church and other places . I always looked forward to a conversation and laugh. My thoughts and Prayers to Nancy, Michael, Mary and all of the loved ones. We will meet again.

To the Family and Friends of Bob Wilson: Please accept my sincere condolences for the passing of Bob. May the many memories of shared moments with Bob be a comfort to you at this sad time. I have many memories created when he was a friend and colleague at City Park Collegiate in Saskatoon. He was a student counsellor who had the ability to reach out to each and every student he came into contact with. The connections created enabled him to help a lot of students to navigate their way through tough teenage and sometimes adult issues. He was very student oriented and a great colleague as well. City Park started up a wrestling team which I coached. When our heavyweight wrestler did not have anyone to practise with suddenly there was Bob, volunteering to work with him. He'd come hustling down after school for practise, dressed in his sweats, old t-shirt and running shoes. Bob ended up with a lot of aches and pains but was the proudest coach you've ever seen when his wrestler won matches and medals. A student had a need and Bob answered the call, which he did every time it was possible. 
Bob and I went hunting together. My best memory was both of us leaning on the truck, looking down a ravine to Lake Diefenbaker. Talking about how lucky we were to live in Saskatchewan, being able to enjoy days and scenes like we were looking at and being able to share it with a friend. We had too few of those days to enjoy together as life, families and school changes took us in different directions. I have many other memories which are mine forever.
 Bob had many interests, talents and abilities, as I've noted reading his obituary. He touched many lives during his time with us, leaving us all in a better place as a result. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers during this sad time. Bob was a good man, with a big heart, who made a difference during his time with us. Please let that be a comfort to you.

Dear Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Losing someone is one of life's most difficult times in our life. Our Creator knows the pain this causes us and he promises to end all sickness and death with his incoming new Kingdom which we pray for when we say the Lord's Prayer, where we ask "Thy Kingdom come." One of the scriptures that assures us of this hope is at Isaiah 33:24 which says, "And no resident will say: "I am sick." Another scripture where Jehovah is describing his Kingdom conditions is at Revelation 21:4 and there we read, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." In this new Kingdom God promises to resurrect those who have fallen asleep in death and return them to us, John 5:28 says " Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice  and come out," I hope this brings you comfort.

My sincere condolences to Bob’s family at this difficult time.  I have fond memories of working with Bob in Saskatoon schools and will remember him as a kind and compassionate man who cared for his students.  He was a great storyteller and was quick to share that gift to cheer a student or a colleague, and his pride and love for his family was evident in the stories he shared about them.  May you find comfort in the many memories you have of Bob.
