Prior to the Second World War, Bob’s father attended Lakefield College School in Lakefield, Ontario.
Bob has referred to 19 former students of Lakefield College School, that he knows of, who lost their lives during the Second World War. Some years ago he researched the lives of each of the 19 students and forwarded, to the school, an outline of what he had learned.
Some years after the war, Bob and his father visited Lakefield College School. His father, thinking of the friends who had not returned from the war, left the school building with tears in his eyes. That image – of the father leaving the school with tears in his eyes – has stayed with me.
