Son of the late Oliver and Catherine King, Bob passed away peacefully on August 27 at Cottage Hospice. Bob is survived and lovingly remembered by his wife Diane, daughter Alison McComb (Brad), and son David (Sheila); beloved grandchildren Anthony, Scott, Kevin, and Dustin McComb; Alexis, Aiden, Olivia, and Ava King. His sister Kathleen McKibbin predeceased him. Also remembering him are cousins, nieces, nephews, and other relatives. Born in Vancouver, Bob graduated from UBC with a B.Ed. and M.Ed. In 1962, he began his professional career in the Vancouver secondary school system, serving in teaching and administrative positions at Prince of Wales, Templeton, Killarney, Tupper, Hamber, and Kitsilano. He retired in 1995 as principal of Magee. In retirement, Bob devoted more time to golf, which he enjoyed greatly. A member of the Men's Midweek Club at the University Golf Club, he served several terms on the executive. He was active in the Vancouver South Rotary Club and was on the board of the Residences for Independent Living Society. The family is most grateful for the tender and supportive care given by the staff at Cottage Hospice and Dr. M. K. MacDonald. In lieu of flowers, donations to BC Children's Hospital, Cottage Hospice, or a charity of one's choice would be welcomed. A gathering to remember Bob and celebrate his life will be held on Tuesday, September 17, 2013, at 2 pm at the University Golf Club, 5185 University Blvd. www.dignitymemorial.com
