It is last Thanksgiving Bob was admitted to the hospital, and did not return home. Today he is as much a part of the lives of his family and friends as he was last year. We miss you but we take solace in your words of advice. When I get together with the family and are discussing issues we always ask "what would Bob say, do" and we are able to think of some advice Bob had given us and benefit from it. Thanks for the time you spent with us.
It is with sadness that I learnt about the passing of Dr Rea. He will be remembered as a collegue and friend at Rideau for over 20 years. We were all blessed by having been associated with Bob.
My prayers are with his wife Becky, his daughter and grand-daughter at this time.
I have a difficult time finding to right words to say. I can not imagine losing my lifelong best friend and husband. The Rea family is constantly in my thoughts and prayers.
I Love You
I had the pleasure working with Bob at Lanark Community Programs. Bob's devotion to his clients and families he served will not be forgotten. He will be sadly missed! Sincere condolences to family and friends.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Bob's death. I knew him as a colleague when I worked at RRC and will always remember him as a advocate for the residents who lived there. Please accept my sincere condolences at this difficult time.
Bob's intelligence, sensibility, and humour will be sorely missed on the OACCPP Board of Directors. Condolences to his family and friends.
A colleague of Bob Rea more than 40 years ago during his teaching days in Iowa I count him and his loving wife, Becky, among my most treasured friends. I have wonderful memories of my visits with them over the years at their home on Mount Pleasant outside of Merrickville. Bob's passing brings great sorrow to my heart.
Sincere condolences to family and friends. I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Bob at RRC. I enjoyed his calm wit and his devotion to the residents with the most challenges. He was a great advocate for them. May your hearts find peace during this time. RIP Dr. Bob

As Administrative Director of the OACCPP, I was extremely fortunate to have worked with Bob. His kindness, devotion and support will never be forgotten and his passing will leave a great void that will never be filled. My heart felt sympathy goes out to his family and friends in this difficult time.
Bob was indeed calm, gentle and kind. Bob's presence was always a gift to those blessed with his company. My heart goes out to the family and I pray that you may receive strength from friends at this sad time.
Dr. Rea gave us sound advice and guidance for 30 years. He valued meeting families,clients and was respected by all. We all looked forward to his consults with our teams, "the CP people." We will truly miss him.
