It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, dad, grandpa, and great grandpa after a courageous battle with Alzheimer's disease.
Bob will be remembered by his loving wife of 62 years Marion; daughters Barbra Campbell, Susan (Tom) Neumann; sons Bob (Peggy), Ron (Klara), Dave (Marcy); and brother Rod (Alma). He will also be missed by 10 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
Bob was predeceased by his parents Robert and Dorothy, and his sister Edith.
Bob proudly served in the Royal Canadian Navy during World War II and retired
as District Chief of the Edmonton Fire Department after 30 years of dedicated service.
A celebration of Bob's life will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, July 15, 2013, at Howard McBride Chapel of Chimes, 10179 108 Street, with a reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Bob's name may be made to the Alzheimer's Society of Alberta or the SPCA.
The family would like to sincerely thank the staff at the Kipnes Centre for Veterans for the very special care and compassion shown to Bob and our family.
