-- It is with our deepest sympathies and a heavy heart that we regretfully announce the passing of Bob Schram, or as many of you more likely knew him, BunchesBob. Bob passed away last week and left behind a loving family and a large group of loyal and loving followers. We have decided to leave Bob’s extremely popular “How to” videos up as a tribute to a man that truly loved his craft. We are currently searching for a suitable replacement for his informative and always engaging “Wedding Flower Consultations”
– we realize that search will be extremely difficult as Bob was not only an extremely talented florist, but also, as many knew and loved him for, he absolutely loved to talk.
Bob was a fifty year floral industry veteran; he started in the floral business in Cornwall, Ontario back in the late 1950s. Over the years Bob hosted and took part in numerous floral demonstrations for various groups. One of his greatest claims to fame was when he had the honour of creating a floral arrangement for Elizabeth Taylor’s birthday while she was filming in Toronto. A man of many talents, Bob was heavily involved in community theatre, film and commercial acting, singing, dancing, directing and choreographing, and his favourite hobby, painting in watercolours and acrylics. Recently Bob had helped hundreds of brides as a Wedding Flower Consultant for BunchesDirect, and has quickly become a hit on Youtube, with multiple videos garnering over 200,000 views.
Bob’s fast wit and always engaging personality will be missed by all whom had the pleasure to meet or converse with him.
