    • We called him Uncle Bob, he was the best Uncle in the world..... I still h ave a hard time with his passing. Because we were such a close family, wh en we were kids - on the weekends three or four of the "Gangloff" kids wou ld sleep over at our house, & some of us "Lindquist" kids would sleep ov er at Gangloff's house. Uncle always would come tuck us in & say "Doree n, it's our spare kids again!!!" He loved to laugh & tease. Uncle B ob & my Dad (Joe) were best friends.
      Uncle Bob loved the outdoors: fishing or hunting when ever he could, & wh en he passed away he was on a hunting trip with his son Ron. Ron liv es in Red Lake, Ontario - Ron & Joyce own a restaurant, & Ron is a bush pi lot. He works part time flying tourist to the fishing/hunting camps.
      Anyway Uncle Bob, Ron & Ron's son Jonathan went hunting to a fly in ca mp on Embryo Lake, they got dropped off by another pilot, I think that w as on the Friday, then they hunted on Saturday, went back to camp, Uncle l aid down for his "nap" before supper, when Ron went to wake him up for sup per, he had died in his sleep. Ron thought it was a heart attack...I ha ve never asked Aunty Doreen. Poor Ron & Jonathan had to spend the nig ht in camp with Uncle, then they had to "walk out" to the next camp in t he morning to got help, Ron told me it was a 2 or 3 hour walk.

      Now Aunty Doreen, you would just love her. When my Mom died, she just to ld "us' girls, that she would be our Mom, & she excepts us to tell her eve rything. If we have a problem, she wants to know about, & lord he lp us if we don't. I was so worried about her, when Uncle Bob died ... th ey had been married 52 years when he died.... but she is so strong wille d. She told me that knowing Uncle died doing something that he loved, w as her comfort.
