ROBERT JAMES (BOB) MUNN

ROBERT (BOB) JAMES MUNN April 13, 1957 - November 24, 2012 Bob's final journey began in July 2011 when he was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) grade IV brain cancer. GBM remains among the lowest life expectancy of all cancers and Bob fought a valiant battle for just over sixteen months. Bob was deeply loved and will be forever missed by his wife, Fanny Handjes and his two sons, Jonathon (wife Rebecca) and Jeremy. He is survived by his mother Helen Munn and his siblings Brian (Dawn), Jo-Ann, Candice (Kim) as well as many other relatives and friends. Those who were instrumental in supporting Bob through his journey and assisted in increasing his survival time include St. Michael's Hospital (Dr. Richard Perrin), Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (Dr. James Perry, Julie, Hyla and Dr. Mainprize), Lakeridge Health Oshawa (Dr. Ngo, Dr. Ladak, Connie Stamp and all the amazing nurses and support staff on the Supportive Care Unit). Special thanks also to Hearth Place (Sonja Sheppard) for their amazing support and to the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada for the resources that they provided. As expressions of sympathy, donations to any one of the above organizations would be much appreciated. Heartfelt thanks to Dr. C.T. (Terry) Rosen, Maxine and Jane. In memory of Bob's kind, gentle spirit - hug someone you love today. Family and friends are invited to Celebrate Bob's Life at a visitation-reception: Wednesday, November 28th from 6-9 p.m. at Barnes Memorial Funeral Home, 5295 Thickson Road N., Whitby (905-655-3662). A private family service and interment will follow at a later date. Messages of condolence may be forwarded to barnesmemorialfuneralhome.com
