Dr Bob (Robert Laroche), part of the group of initial volunteers that started the Montreal Blues Society, has sadly passed away.
He was a founding member of the Montreal Blues Society and was an avid supporter of the blues and loved to play harp. He was a regular at the Café Campus blues series which ran from 1993 to 2006. He was such a fan of local blues that he had the MBS logo tattooed on his arm as well as a tribute tattoo of the Café Campus series.
He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
