MARTIN, Robert Williams Parnaby –
June 7h, 1933 - May 7, 2023
Robert (Bob) Williams Parnaby Martin passed away peacefully in Whitby, Ontario on May 7, 2023 in his 90th year with his family by his side, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Bob was a devoted husband to Margaret Martin (Frost), a loving father to Michael (Abby), Nancy (Robert Farmer) and Andrew, and a cherished brother to Marion, Margaret (Verne Miller), Archie (Sharon), Douglas (Joyce), Phyllis (Ken Salmon), Nancy and Ronald.
He will be missed by his grandchildren William, Maddie, Cora, Lucy and Elliot.
Bob loved dogs, dessert and children – in that order. He was a long-serving educator, beginning his career in a one-room schoolhouse in Canton, Ontario and ending it as a Durham District School Board superintendent.
Bob’s family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to his caregivers at The Village of Taunton Mills for the excellent care he received during his struggle with Alzheimer’s.
A memorial service will be held at All Saints’ Anglican Church at 300 Dundas Street West in Whitby on June 10 at 11 a.m. Donations may be made to the animal charity of your choice.
