Ottawa, Ontario -- October 27, 2014 -- It is with great regret that we must report the passing of Bob Smart of State Farm. Bob was tragically involved in a fatal motor vehicle accident on Hwy. 401 near South Stormont, Ontario on October 18. Bob was pronounced dead at the scene. His sister, Lynda Baynton, passed away a few hours later from injuries sustained in the crash.
They were en route from Toronto to Montreal to celebrate the birthday of their granddaughter and niece, ChloÃ©.
Bob was well liked and highly respected both in the insurance industry and by the collision repair professionals with whom he dealt on a daily basis.
