GRAY Robert (Bob) February 28th, 1934 - November 16th, 2009 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bob Gray. Predeceased by his loving wife Connie and his parents, Lionel and Muriel, Bob will be forever remembered lovingly by his children, Alison Marshall (Phil) and Scott (Inge), his grandchildren, Matthew, Kelsey and Tyler (Alison) and Finley and Charlie (Scott), and his sister Mary Mason (Bob). Arriving from England in 1954 Bob soon found a career in Canadian film and television that would span nearly 40 years. Living on the North Shore for most of this time he raised a family with Connie taking summer breaks on Gabriola Island and travelling the world. Throughout his life he enjoyed meeting people and exploring different cultures with an open mind and a big heart. His love for practical jokes and an -off-the-wall sense of humour was always evident and usually appreciated by his family, friends and those with whom he worked. Like his Father, Bob had a gift for managing people and details, getting the job or task at hand completed with wit and accomplishment. Upon retirement Bob continued his love of travel with his beloved wife Connie sharing in many world adventures with friends old and new. His later years spent with his grandchildren showcased many talents of love, caring and a new-found patience. Whether with family or friends Bob made you feel special. He meant so much to so many people and will be sorely missed. It is our greatest hope that he has found peace with his dearest Connie. Bob and his Family wish to acknowledge the love and care both he and Connie received from the staff and volunteers at LGH. Many thanks from us all. A private scattering of ashes will occur at a later date in lieu of a service.
