The Guest Book is expired.
February 15, 1949 - February 17, 2012
It is with heavy hearts that we are announcing the passing of Bob Symons. Losing his battle with liver cancer in Lethbridge, Alberta, Bob went peacefully surrounded by his long-time companion of fourteen years, Rae Huber (of Lethbridge), his two sons Michael Todd Symons, and James Allan Symons, and niece Roxanne Wingert (all of Calgary). He was also surrounded by Michael's common-law wife Kim Hieb and James' companion Luke Meier. Bob is also survived by his sister and brother- in-law, Audrey and Egon Sargent (of Vernon, BC), sisters Diane Hayes (of Westbank, BC), Denise Chase, and Karen Lizee (of Moose Jaw, SK). Bob was very proud of his three grandchildren, Eric, Megan (Scarlett), and Tyler, as well as of his great-grandson Dante (all of Calgary). Bob was still great friends with his ex-wife Shirley Symons Gordon (of Calgary). Bob had many nieces and nephews, mother-in-law Rosina Chartrand (of Calgary), and so many friends who will miss him dearly. Honorary Pall Bearers: Bob Angus (of Lethbridge), Steve Seida (of Moose Jaw), Egon Sargent (of Vernon), Marv Merkel (of Moose Jaw), Keith (Rooster) Mitchell, Lenny (Chink) Perkins. Bob Symons was a strong man with a big heart, and he fought until the very end. We love you dad. Friends and family are invited to celebrate Bob's life on Sunday February 26th, 2012 at 2:00pm, at 23 Bridge Villa Office Community Hall, at Bridge Villa Estates, the 2300 block of 13 Street North in Lethbridge, Alberta.
