It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Robert Hind (age 59). Taken from us far too soon. Beloved husband and best friend of Nancy Hind married 34 years. Devoted father of Julie (Bashirr) and Ajay (Emma). The cherished son of Helen and the late Ernest Hind. Rob is survived by his siblings Steve (Kim), Bill (Linda), Joey Farr, Brenda Ellis (Lee). Robert was a sports enthusiast and a recent addition to the hole in one club, he will be missed by his golfing, curling and pickleball buddies. He loved to entertain family and friends, happy to host and cook. He will be dearly missed by all his family and many friends. Rob retired from Dofasco in 2015 following a successful 30 year career in Finance, Corporate Administration and Human Resources. He was a hardworking, respected and valued member of the Dofasco Team. He retired young and spent his last 5 years living life exactly as he wanted. Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will take place at a later date.

My heartfelt sympathy to Nancy and her family. I only knew Rob a short time as we met at Pickleball this past season, but I could see that he was a good man. He was taken way to soon!
My thoughts and prayers to the family.

I knew ROB from when he worked at Baycoat for a short time. I also met up with him golfing in Pennsylvania as well as in the Hamilton area. He was very pleasant and happy person. RIP Rob

We were so shocked & saddened to hear the passing of Rob. It is hard not to remember the first time we met Robert Hind. His presence, welcoming personality and straight forwardness cannot be mistaken. The Garba Family are fortunate enough to be connected to this exemplary and generous man and his family though his wonderful daughter Julie, Bashirrs partner. On the few occasions we spent with him & his family will last with us forever. We wish his lovey wife, Nancy and her supporting immediate and extended family will find the strength to bear this unbearable loss. He was taken away from this world way too soon. Rob will be missed greatly by both Friends and Family.

Shocked and saddened by Rob's sudden passing. During our many end of season golf trips down south Rob would liven the room and make us laugh with his tremendous sense of humour. A great guy who will be missed terribly. My deepest condolences to his family.

Oh no, my heart is broken and at a loss for words. He was a lovely man and forever be my mother's favourite son even if she had any. He was the only teenager Mom let drive her car on his own. I heard many stories, laughter, and Johnny Cash. Oh my are these times hard. You and the children have my deepest sympathies.

We were shocked and sadden by the news. Our deepest sympathy's to Nancy and the family.
We only knew Rob for such a short time but in that time Rob touched our hearts with joy and laughter and as a friend. Our curling adventures together or as the opposing team were always amazing, full of fun and laughter, and always something we looked forward to. He will sadly be missed. The lantern we bought in North Bay will shine in memory of Rob and our friendship.
