Bob came to Winton from the Mitchell area in 1957. He drew a block on the Diamantina River and subsequently named it Tibourie. At nineteen years old his dream of becoming a cattle producer was soon realized, the land and stock becoming his major focus and passion. This property was the beginning of a long and successful life in the pastoral industry.
After fulfilling the conditions of his lease, he blended into the community and soon became aware of the need to assist in events in and around Winton. Among others, the Winton Pastoral and Agricultural Society became one of his favourite attractions. He was a committee member for many years and worked as a volunteer, mainly in the Cattle Section. Being a strong competitor, he nominated his cattle in most sections. Nothing made him prouder than being successful and worked harder to improve the quality of his cattle for subsequent Shows. Bob chose to become an ongoing sponsor for the Cow and Calf section until his death in 2017.
Throughout his membership of the WPAS, Bob was a volunteer, a committee member, served one term as Show President, and was bestowed with Life Membership.
