Mackellar RobertMACKELLAR, Robert (Bob) Neil Mackellar   - April 13, 1949 - August 23, 2022

The family of Robert “Bob” Neil MacKellar is saddened to announce his death after a lengthy illness.

He was 73.

Bob was predeceased by the love of his life, his wife Mary (nee McCormack) in 2012.

He died just three days shy of their 50th wedding anniversary.

Born to Neil and Gwen MacKellar in Toronto, Bob is the oldest of five siblings who miss him already.

Stuart “Bud” (Maureen) MacKellar, Kim Laudrum, Christine (Pierce) MacKellar, and Elaine (Ian) Esplin.

Together with his two sisters-in-law Sue “Anna” (Chris) Bonnell and Pam (Jay) McCormack, there are 11 nephews and nieces who can proudly say “Bob’s your uncle”: Ryan (Holly) and Cody Bonnell, Rachel (Scott) Simpson, Marissa and Kylee McCormack, Ryan (Jennifer) and Jesse Fogarty, Kate (Michael) Laudrum Brolley, Eric (Brianne) Laudrum, Devon (Harry) Kirms, and Kenna Esplin.

Bob’s a great uncle to Heidi and Harry Kirms, Everly Simpson, Matilda Laudrum Brolley, and Olivia Fogarty. He will also be missed by his Aunt Barbara Cameron, cousins, friends, and Grace, his pet schnoodle.

Born in Toronto, his love of the outdoors took Bob, at the age of 16 from work surveying in the bush in Ontario to a successful career in construction management.

He studied landscape architecture at Ryerson Polytechnic Institute.

Bob and Mary married August 26, 1972.

They moved from Markham to Aurora in 1986, where they lived the rest of their lives.

Bob was a loyal Toronto Maple Leaf fan, cheered the Toronto Blue Jays, and joined the boys for the annual Crapathon in Florida.

He was a joyful prankster, nickname inventor, road trip buddy, animal rescuer, community volunteer, and the kindest most gentle soul you could ever meet.
