Deepest sympathies from our family to the Veitch family. Bob, as a long time member of the Matheson community was well respected as a local farmer and especially for his veterinary skills. I remember him coming to assist my father and other local farmers on many an occasion when there was no licensed veterinary in the Matheson area. In addition, he was likely one longest surviving and most respected farmers in Matheson and surrounding area. He shall be missed within the community of Matheson.

Sorry to read of Bob's passing. He was always a good and generous friend. I remember how he ploughed up the field and allowed us to plant potatoes and corn. Then he would use the digger to dig up the potatoes in the fall. Our sincere sympathy. Charles & Maxine Kerr
