McCracken was a councillor from 2004 to 2007 and served with former Mayor Les Rempel who says Bob was very devoted to High River.

"He had a real heart for the community. He wasn't one to go off on tangents. His primary interest was the social welfare of the community. He got involved in youth programs in town and was interested in seniors as well. And so, one of those steady guys that was always there."

McCracken, made his living as an accountant after moving to High River with his family from Quebec in 1995.

He was 68.
