Bob is survived by his loving wife Gwendolyn (Ruth).
His first wife, June Louise Rebstock, predeceased him in 1982.
Bob was the beloved father of Bill (Yvette), Cathy (Ian), John, Jim and Beth, cherished grandfather to Melissa, Cameron, Heather, Nathan, David, Geoff, Kira and Brianna and great-grandfather to Ella, Keiran, Fisher and Sawyer.
Bob lovingly embraced Ruth's children Jim (Helen), Sandy (Sam), David (Laurie) and Bunny (Geoff) and her 11 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. He is survived by his brother Ronald and predeceased by his sister Elizabeth and brother John.
Bob was born in Ridgeway, Ontario, on July 1, 1928 to William and Marjorie (nee West). He graduated from McMaster University in 1949 with a Bachelor of Arts and went on to study Social Work at the University of Toronto, retuning to earn a Master's degree in 1963.
He worked in this field throughout his career, retiring in 1989 from his position of Chief Social Worker with Queen Street Mental Health Centre (CAMH). Bob was a gentle, honest man who enjoyed playing bridge and reading but time spent with his family was most important to him. Sincere thanks to the staff at Post Inn Village for their caring and kindness over the past 8 months.
In memory of Bob, donations can be made to the Christian Children's Fund of Canada or the charity of your choice.
