Bob McCollum wishes to advise that he has officially retired, effective immediately, after almost 97 years of the enviable task of living life to the fullest. Born in Toronto on the longest day of the year, which he claimed was even longer for his mother, Bob began his long and remarkable life that was full of family, exceptional friendships and countless accomplishments. In 1956, he moved his family west from Ottawa to settle on the North Shore. He became an avid boater and cruised the west coast for 50 years on his beloved Nola Dene. So many life experiences develop unmatched values and character. Bob is survived by his daughter Susan (Barry), son Graham (Shelley), brother Bill and grandchildren Stacey, Rob, Daryl, Kevin and Leslie. Bob was predeceased by his wife and love of his life, Gwen, brother Jack, sister Mary and dear friend Raye. Many heartfelt thanks to Joanna, Jenny, Joan, Jill and Gail for caring so much. To all the staff on 4E LGH, thank you. Special thanks to our doctor and friend, Wayne Smith. A celebration of Bob's life will be held at a future date.
