Proud grandpa of Blake (Kate), Candice (John), Rebecca (Felipe), Megan (Hani), Taylor (Jeff), Paige (Ben), Olivia, Tristan, Sierra, Cole, Calleigha, Samantha and Cayden; and great-grandpa of Kayla, Kiley, Jordan, Adaline, Logan, J.J., Cian and Carter.
Predeceased by his parents Lawrence and Jean, sister Nancy and beloved daughter Deborah.
Bob, aka “Big Daddy” was a proud family man who quickly gained the love and friendship of those he met. Born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Bob was a northerner to his core and was very proud of the town he came from. If you had ever met Bob, you would know that he was a true, hard-core fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs – the ink he proudly displayed said it all.
Bob enjoyed trips to the local pub for conversation and a cold pint. A tour on his scooter would take Bob downtown to chat with friends and hand out dog treats. Bob loved people and animals alike, but had a particular soft spot for his cat Moe.
Bob’s family is grateful to the staff at Tiverton Park Manor, Kincardine hospital and to the PSWs who helped care for Bob over the years. Your kindness and care of our dad will not be forgotten. Bob, with his warm smile, touched the lives of many as he went about his days. He will be sadly missed and always remembered by those who knew him.
Private family arrangements.
Interment in Kirkland Lake Cemetery at a later date.
If so desired, donations in Bob’s memory to the Angel Fund, Queen Street Veterinary Services in Kincardine or the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by Bob’s family.
