September 17, 1934 to March 12, 2021 ~ Quietly in the home he built, on the land he loved, with a view of his farm and family by his side… as per his wishes.
Loving husband of Elinor and the late Mary. Father of Kathy McCarty (John), Jeanette Booth, late Steve (Laurie), Paul (Natalie) and Chris (Merrill). Stepfather of Jean Sonnenburg (Alan) and Ken Sonnenburg. He dearly loved his 10 grand and 6 great grandchildren.
Robert proudly served with the Royal Canadian Airforce and worked for Ontario Hydro for 35 years. Throughout his life, Bob volunteered his time in the community making sure the children had healthy activities to keep them busy. Bob loved a good game of euchre. He was a man of his word who lived his life with integrity and honour.
A life well lived.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Mark Deverell and the staff at NSHN-Blind River for all their care.
Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society are appreciated by the family and can be made online at www.cancer.ca or by mailing cheques to 55 St. Clair Avenue West, Suite 500, Toronto, ON M4V 2Y7.
A celebration of Bob’s life will be held at a later date.
