It is with heavy hearts that the family of Robert Barr announce his passing peacefully at the Meadows Long Term Care in Ancaster on Thursday, May 16, 2024 at the age of 82.

 Robert was born in Scotland and emigrated to Canada in 1953 and grew up in Dundas. He was an employee of the Dundas Star and then went on to have his own business of Barr Painting and Decorating for many years

He will be sadly missed by his wife of nearly 60 years, Barbara Barr (nee Young).

He was the loving father of Jill (Mike) and Bryan (Madeline) and cherished Papa of Kevin, Rachel, Robert and Claire.

 He was predeceased by his parents, John and Helen Barr, his brothers, Bill and John and his sisters Margaret and Rose.

 Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.

We would like to extend our thanks to The Meadows Long Term Care, St. Peters Hospital, St. Joseph’s Hospital and the Juravinski Hospital and their staff for their kindness and support in Robert’s care.
