August 19 1934 – July 26 2019
After a brief illness, Bob passed away peacefully with his family by his side, at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre, Barrie. Survived by his wife Marjorie and his pride and joy three children Gary (Jill), Sharon, and Julia (Dave). Predeceased by brothers George and Alex, sister Mary, brother-in-law Norm Wright and special mother-in-law Vera Wright. Survived by his sister-in-law Connie Wright. Growing up on a farm in Chinguacousy, Bob married his high school sweetheart and departed 61 years later on their wedding anniversary. In his earlier years he was the final employee of Avro Aircraft. After a 33 year career with the Scarborough Board of Education as Superintendent of Personnel, Bob retired to Horseshoe Highlands and happily assumed the roles of community handyman, golfer, marshal, Rink Rat (of the year), gardener extraordinaire, volunteer and fund raiser, social butterfly, advisor and friend to all. Aside from his family, Bob always felt his friends were his most valued assets.
