Bob is predeceased by his first-born son, his parents Bill and Margaret(Reading) Spragg. His siblings, Beverly, Wayne and Eugene, and brother in law Mort Dale. A long-time resident of Ingersoll and known to everyone, Bob was generous with both his time and spirit. Driving friends and family to appointments, visiting old friends in hospitals, and nursing homes, brightening everyone’s day with a funny story, and sharing his love of life along the way.
He was very proud and grateful to be 38 years sober and helped many others on their difficult journey to sobriety as well.
Bob was a hard-working man, a roofer throughout most of his years and even in retirement continued to collect scrap metal and cans, doing what he loved best, making money from nothing.
Bob loved to ride motorcycles, play cards such as poker, euchre, crib, and travelling to Vegas.
