McKINNON, Robert William
Bob passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 11, 2013 in Richmond Hospital Palliative Care Unit in his 80th year. Survived by his loving family: wife Rita of 57 years; son William and fiancé Janet; son Douglas and wife Jackie; daughter Sharon and husband Lee; and four grandchildren: Allison, Kevin, Andrew and Bradley.
Bob was born in Vancouver and resided in Richmond for the past 40 years. He retired in 1992 after four decades with B.C. Tel. During his retirement he was an active volunteer (Mr. Fixit) and member of South Arm United Church. He leaves behind many friends that will remember him for his philosophical discussions about life. Bob enjoyed his time socializing with his companions, playing golf, and living life to its fullest. One of his greatest pleasures was sharing a meal and a beverage with family and friends.
A special thank you to Doctor Alexiadis and the wonderful caring staff at Richmond Hospital Palliative Care Unit.
A Memorial Service and tea will be held on Saturday, June 22, 2013 at South Arm United Church, 11051 No. 3 Road, Richmond B.C. at 1:30 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations made in Bob's memory to South Arm United Church.
