We were very saddened to hear of the passing of Past President Bob Munson in July of this year. Bob was president of the OPA in 1964 and editor of the Green
Sward in 1969, contributing to the establishment and growth of OPA as the voice of parks in Ontario. Upon hearing of Bob’s passing, one of our past presidents provided some fond memories of Bob, adding, “He was a positive, cheerful person that brightened any conversation and any room.” We are so very grateful for the contributions Bob made to OPA during his career with St. Catharines Parks & Recreation. Our association, and the lives of all who knew Bob, have been enriched and forever changed. Rest in peace Bob, you will be missed. “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bob at the age of 89, at Garden City Manor on Tuesday July 7, 2020. Beloved husband
