Robert Clare Symons (1948).
I was born in St. Catharines, Ontario, July 26, 1948, son of William Paul Symons and Barbara Ruth Sutherland. My maternal ancestors are from Scotland. My paternal ancestors are from England. I attended public school & high school in St. Catharines, Ontario.
I first came to Kitchener-Waterloo in 1967 as a co-op math student at the University of Waterloo. I lived in residence at St. Paul's College, and a few of us went to Trinity United, Kitchener twice a week to sing in the choir. Helen & I were married at Trinity in 1973 and we have two grown children and one grand-daughter, at time of writing this biography (2017).
