Bob was one of four brothers born to Annie (Salmond) and Harry Leech in Hamilton, Ontario. Raised by his mother after the death of his father at age six, he was a proud Boy Scout, guided by many helping hands during his boyhood. He studied as a millwright and discovered a passion for sailing in early adulthood. He sailed his boat the ‘Gypsy’ south to Houston Texas when he was 41 and lived, worked and sailed there for 53 years.
