REID, Robert Lorne "Bob"  - Passed away peacefully at Lakeridge Health Oshawa on December 5, 2017 at the age of 79.

Loving husband of Carol for 54 years.

Adored father of Kelly (Derek Parent) and Christopher (Laurie).

Cherished grandfather of Tyler, Benjamin, Nicholas, Matthew and Daniel. Robert was a beloved brother of Leonard (Helen) and June (Les) and was predeceased by Donald (Elva), Jack (Margaret) and Lois (late Gord).

Robert was a beloved brother-in-law of Lorraine (Richard), Dennis (Jill) and Betty (late Walter).

He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Bob will be forever remembered for his gentle nature, his love of woodworking and watching sports on TV, especially hockey and golf. He was an all around good guy who will also be missed by his four-legged friend Brandii, a miniature Schnauzer.

The Reid family wishes to extend their gratitude to the caring and compassionate nursing staff at Lakeridge Health Oshawa for their professionalism and attention shown to Robert and his family; words cannot express.
