In 2014, we celebrated Robert Sargent’s 90th birthday at St. Saviour’s Anglican Church in Toronto. 35 years ago he welcomed my parents, Vietnamese boat people, to Canada. He has become a part of our family and we affectionately call him ‘Ong Bob’, which is Uncle Bob in Vietnamese. This was his last birthday celebration. My siblings and I are all grown up now. We are proud Canadians and owe much thanks to Canadians like Uncle Bob acted as a guardian and mentor to us. We will carry on his legacy by remembering to give a hand to newcomers joining our Canadian family.
