Bob Coyne

I was born in Princeton in 1953 and attended school there.  After graduation, I worked as a mechanic, completing my apprenticeship in 1978. I then continued to work as a mechanic at the Similco Mine in Princeton until 1991, followed by a position with the Town of Princeton as a mechanic and welder.  The position with the Town of Princeton included maintaining mobile equipment as well as the water and sewer systems.  I obtained a Level II Water Operator designation and continued my work with the Town until 2014, when I retired.

I have been involved in community activities my entire life.  I was a Boy Scout leader as a young man, and as my children grew older, my wife and I became involved in 4H and Highland Dance which took us across Canada to many competitions and events.

Currently, my wife and I do organic vegetable farming on our family farm just east of Princeton.  My other passion in life is cross-country skiing.  I am a member of the China Ridge Trails Ski Club and am very active in all club activities.  In the winter months I teach kids how to ski and offer a family ski every Saturday.

I believe that it takes a community to raise a family and I am very proud to be an active member of our community.
