Bob Shindle, FOH/Recording Engineer, Father, Husband, and Friend

Bob Shindle was an extraordinaire person with deep ties to the Canadian Entertainment industry. He was generous with his time and guidance and touched many backstage and in front of house. Unfortunately, on January 17, 2023, Bob passed on from this life at Princess Margaret Hospital while bravely combating cancer. Those closest to him, we give our deepest condolences, and we all have suffered a loss. 

On Sept 22nd, 2020 and the days before, Bob Shindle was instrumental in #lightuplive in Toronto and across Canada. He advocated for the Canadian Music and Theatre industry, the industry and friends cared for dearly that was in dire distress due to the pandemic.  In the days leading to that night, he supported his peers and made those connections that helped make that night a success in Canada and raised awareness for what we all were experiencing.  We appreciate what you did for us all. You will be missed and remembered for your industry achievements, the many gifts to family and friends and your work on .#LightUpLive and #EclaironsLesScenes .

 Rest in Peace, Bob. You earned it.
