May 15, 1925 - December 5, 2012 Passed away suddenly from complications of pneumonia at the Lakeshore Hospital on December 5, 2012 with his family by his side. Devoted father of Nancy (Robert Reynolds) and Ellen (Murray Dobbin) and grandfather of Hayley, Cuyler and Jamie. Robert was predeceased by his wife, Dorothy, whom he was married to for 59 years. He enlisted at a very young age to serve in WWII. After the war, he worked at Canadian General Electric/Camco until his retirement. Robert made cherished friendships at the Mount Royal Tennis Club where he worked tirelessly as the volunteer Director, Courts and Grounds. For his efforts he was thrilled to be awarded an honourary lifetime membership and a tournament trophy in his name. Very special thanks to the staff at Ste. Anne's Veterans Hospital for their care and compassion in his final years. As per his wishes, the funeral will be private for immediate family members. A memorial celebration of his life will be organized at a later date. For those wishing to do so, donations in Robert's memory can be made to Ste. Anne's Hospital Foundation.
