LYONS, Robert (Bob)Dennis November 11, 1945 - Aug 19, 2013
It is with heart felt sadness that we announce the passing of Robert (Bob) Lyons, with his soul mate Suzan Lagrove by his side. Bob was born in Vancouver and worked and lived throughout the Vancouver area and Port Alberni. His career in the produce industry spanned 36 years, with an additional 10 years spent as the General Manager of the Tseshaht Market in Port Alberni. His contributions from 1998 to 2008 helped the Tseshaht expand and grow the market into a successful business. Bob is survived by his four children and the love of his life for the past fourteen years Suzan. Bob was an avid sports fan and enjoy watching baseball, hockey and golf. He loved golf, boating and fishing. Bob loved to travel to the warm sunny beaches of Mexico, Cuba and the Dominican Republic. He met and became friends with others from around the world during these adventures. He was one of a kind, a caring, loving, giving person who loved to spoil his soul mate. God saw him getting tired And a cure was not to be. So he put His arms around him And whispered, "Come with Me" With tearful eyes we watched him suffer And saw him fade away. Although we loved him dearly, We could not make him stay. A golden heart stop beating, Hard working hands to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
Thank you to the nurses and doctors at Cowichan District Hospital for their kindness they showed him in his last days with us. At Bob's request there will be no service. Those wishing to make a memorial contribution in Bob's name, may do so to the BC Lung Association, specifically "Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis research." FIRST MEMORIAL FUNERAL SERVICES Duncan, B.C.
