Robert (Bob) Larter
1925 - 2015
On Boxing Day, Dad passed away a few weeks shy of his 91st birthday. This wonderful man who always had a twinkle in his eyes went to join his wife, Phyllis. Mom left us on March 27, 2011. Bob is survived by his four children, Kea (Alfred) Manfredonio, Fairfax, Virginia (Kari, AJ and Austin); Bob (Donna), Langley, BC, (Kimberly and James, children Avery and Carter) and Jon; Susan (Ralph) Dafoe, Victoria, B.C., Ralph's daughters, Katie, Sarah and Allison and their families; Jim (Cheryl), Estevan, (Ryan and Lauren, Scott and Kaela). Bob is also survived by his two sisters, Dode (Jim) Spencer and Darlyne Kober; sisters-in- law Joan (George) Cook, Kaye Larter and Marlene Larter. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews who adored their Uncle Bob. He was predeceased by his brothers, Percy, Lou, Josh, Ron and Gary and his parents, Charles and Myrtle Larter and brother-in-law Ken Kober. Dad had a couple of careers in his life - from his many years at John Deere, to his tenure as MLA for the Estevan area, but the one he was proudest of was serving Saskatchewan as Agent General in London, England. He retired twice, the most recent was 1986 and he and mom enjoyed many years of retired living in Mesa and the West Coast. They returned to Estevan in March of 2011. In August of 2014, the entire family of 19 travelled to Hawaii in honour of Dad's 90th birthday. Many thanks to Eunice Massett and her staff at Hillview Manor for the loving care they gave Dad these past few years. We will always be grateful that he lived in such a wonderful setting. A Memorial Service will be held on Monday, January 4, 2016 at St. Paul's United Church, Estevan at 11:00 a.m. Lunch will follow the service, and interment will take place at the Estevan City Cemetery. Donations in Dad's memory may be made to the New Estevan Regional Nursing Home, 1201 - 2nd Street, Estevan, SK, S4A 0M1.
