On Thursday, December 6th, Bob left this earth to begin a new journey. Forever beloved husband of Jeannie, devoted father of Karen and Jamie (Martina) and cherished grandfather to his two girls Siobhan and Sian.
He was the hub of our lives with his humour, kindness and loving ways and we will miss him so much. Bob was predeceased by his parents Robert Sr. and Kathleen (Newell) Gairns.
He also leaves behind his other treasured families: the Newell's, the Brennan's, and his wonderful boys Arnold and Guy.
A funeral mass will be held December 11th at St. George's Church on Picadilly Ave. at 11:00 a.m. A reception will follow at the Elmdale Tavern (1084 Wellington, east of Parkdale).
A very special thank you to Dr. Jonker, who kept him going these last three years. Another very special thank you to the fantastic care given by Dr. Hurdon and nurses Marsha, Derek and Ann. Bob used to say "You are in good hands with C.C.A.C."
Donations to the Irving Greenberg Cancer Centre would be appreciated.
