HANSON, Robert George  - July 31, 1946 – January 5, 2019

On Saturday, January 5, 2019, Bob passed away at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville.

He was the beloved husband of Gail, dear father of Jeff (Amber), loving stepfather of Peter and Andrea, cherished brother/brother-in-law of Rick (Susan), Susan (Jay Long), Brenda (Howard Jarvis) and Nancy Weber.

Bob was devoted to his grandchildren, Finn, Levi and Reid, and keenly interested in the lives of his nieces, nephews and their children.

He enjoyed sharing many activities with his family including travelling with Gail across Canada, especially to the west coast, fine dining, culinary adventures in the kitchen, Hanson family golf tournaments and hosting parties around the pool.

"Doctor Bob" worked as a psychologist for the Durham District School Board until his retirement.

A strong advocate for children with special needs and mental health challenges, his enthusiastic effort on their behalf continues to have a positive impact on many families.

Bob's wonderful sense of humour, his generosity, compassion and unconditional support for others will be greatly missed.

Donations to the Hospital for Sick Children would be much appreciated.
