Rob was our cousin. (His grandmother, Virginia was my father's sister) I knew Rob more in his childhood. We used to spend many happy times at his home in White Rock. In the summer he and his sister Carol used to come to our summer cottage on Vancouver Island, BC. We used to build rafts, have bon-fires and just have lots of childhood fun. I have fond memories of Rob. I am so sorry for your loss Lauren as well as to Tammy and particularly his children. Our prayers go out to you all. What a wonderful man he grew up to become. Sincerely, Kelly & Robert Worthen-Jai

Kaylie and family,

Joe, Lauren and I were so sad to learn of Rob's passing. He was an exceptional man and a great dad to his three kids of whom he was so very proud. A kind and generous soul who was always willing to help. We will miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

To the whole Greaves family,

For a memorable period in my life, Rob was like a second Dad. He made me admire how a father could make his family so happy, just by remembering the small things. A man committed to the promises he made.
Rob inspires me to this day to be a better son, a better brother, a better partner, and future father.

Boy could he also play the bagpipes!

Yours truly,
Stephen Bentley

To the Greaves family: my heart felt condolences and prayers are extended to you. while I had not seen Rob since we marched off the RMC parade square in 1984 with the rest of our class, I have nothing but memories of an out-going, adventurous and cheerful individual that was always there to lend a helping hand to his fellow classmates.
God be with you all

To the Greaves family.

I had the privilege of working with Rob for several years at the Orleans CPC. He was always around, with his big smile and kind words. I worked many events where he showed up to `check in`on us. The next best thing to his smile were the sandwiches he would bring... :-) Rob has inspire me to pursue my dream of working in the security, emergency management field. I will move on in his honor!

Unfortunately I am out of town right now and will be unable to attend the service tomorrow, but I am assured that my former CPC colleagues will be in attendance.

My thoughts and Prayers are with you all in these difficult times.

Please know that he will never be forgotten! May he rest in peace xo

Lauren, my words are inadequate to express the sorrow and condolence to you and his children and all his family. Today being a Remembrance Day 11 Nov 2012 , it is a greater solemn loss to lose a life-long friend in Robert Charles Greaves whom we were bonded together as college roommates in the institution of Canada's Royal Military College. Soni and I were honoured by his friendship and presence as part of our wedding party. Our children were ever excited to see him and hug him dearly as their Uncle Rob.

I remember Rob as a person who never let a smile leave his face. He was always upbeat and energetic. I last met Rob as he was dining in Kemptville with a couple of relatives and he positively bounced across the room to say hi and we had a great conversation.
I spent too few minutes with him that evening but he said he was going to beat this dreadful disease. A friend forever, Rob. from Iain
