John Robert was the oldest of the Sobey cousins. He was a hard worker, like both his parents. He had his father's unique sense of humor and his mother's big heart. He like to tease us younger cousins, but was never mean spirited about it and had a huge barrel chested laugh. He pretty much accepted people for who they are. We will all miss him.
