July 28, 1932 – January 18, 2016
Peacefully at St. Joseph’s Hospital, with his family by his side on Monday, January 18th 2016 in his 84th year. Much loved husband and best friend of Anne. Cherished father of Robert (Karen) and Laurie. Survived by his brother Jim (Pat) and sister Joyce (Neal). Bob was a loving grandfather to Hayden, Brianne, Lara, Josh, Meghan and Logan. Bob will also be sadly missed by many other family, friends and nieces and nephews. Bob cherished the time he spent with all of his grandchildren and was also a fine local artist being quite involved with the Dundas Valley School of Art. Friends will be received by the family on Wednesday evening from 6-9 p.m. at Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main Street, Dundas. A private family funeral will be held. A Celebration of Bob’s Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated by the family.
Sorry for your loss Laurie and Ann.I always enjoyed the chats I had with Bob when I met him downtown in Dundas.
