GILLIES, Robert William February 10, 1942 July 21, 2006 After a courageous battle, Bob has triumphantly gone home to be with his Lord. He was born in Victoria, B.C. Survived by his loving wife of 41 years, Susan; daughters, Correne and Christine; son, Scott; grandchildren, Sara, Kylie, Alana, Cole and Landon. Bob was an electrical contractor in Victoria for 42 years. He played as hard as he worked and sometimes harder. He was heavily involved in motorcycle racing and later on, auto racing. Bob was a natural leader and respected for his honesty and integrity and will always be remembered for his sense of humour. He will be greatly missed by his loving family and his peers. Memorial Service will be held at MCCALL BROS. FLORAL CHAPEL, Johnson & Vancouver Streets, on Wednesday, July 26, 2006 at 11:00 am with a reception to follow in the Graham and Torrey McCall Centre. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.mccallbros.com
