NOTICE

Thank you for visiting HaltonObituaries.com for the past 10 years!  Unfortunately, the end to our popular website is near.

We have reviewed the logistical costs of providing current Obituary Notices online to HaltonObituaries.com. 

Without local advertising, or the participation and support of Halton-Area Funeral Centres, we are making the tough decision to leave our website dormant effective November 30, 2019.

Private postings of notices to us for $19.95 each, is a fraction of the cost of posting a one-time publication into daily or weekly newspapers.  And for Funeral Centres participating with HaltonObituaries.com on a yearly basis, the cost is substantially less per obit - and would include the Full Notice, with Banners, Text Links, and Redirects to their Websites.

But we don’t have a participating funeral centre, nor do we have any local advertisers.  In contrast, our DurhamObituaries.com site has been successful and cost manageable for an even longer period of time, with several participating funeral centres and advertisers, and gives you an idea of what an even more-visited Obituary Website can look like with participants.

If you would like to see this site continue publishing daily obit notices for HALTON Region, please consider coming on board as a participating funeral centre or advertiser, and we would be willing to renew our direction to continue posting Obituary Notices.

Thank you,
HaltonObituaries.com

FOOTE, William Robert 'Bob'On Sunday, November 3, 2019, after a long fight against autoimmune disease, Bob's struggle finally ended at the age of 90 years.

Loving Husband of Nellie (nee Blam), Beloved Father of Patricia, Susan (William), Joanne (Barry), John (Joanna),

Beloved Brother of Jack (Donna), Carole Racine (Omer) and Sharon Crookes (Peter), Cherished Grandfather to Kelly Pichiello (Nick), Michael Osborne, Lidia and Oliver Foote.

A native of Windsor, Ontario, he went to the University of Detroit where he studied to be an electrical engineer. Upon graduating, he worked for GE before landing a position with S&C Electric, with whom he remained for the rest of his working career. It would be hard to overstate the importance of S&C Electric in Bob's life. That company was quite simply his pride and joy.

Bob gave back to his community in numerous ways, be it through his volunteer work with Cooksville United Church (including a year in which he was acting minister), the Erindale Lions Club (of which he was President for a year), the Red Cross as a financial contributor and as a regular blood donor, and the numerous charities that he and Nellie supported over the years.

He was generous to a fault, contributing financially not only to his own children's and grandchildren's education, but also to that of his extended family.

He was handy around the house and ensured that everybody pitch in with chores.

Taking after his father (an alumnus of the Windsor Spitfires) and his athletic brother Jack, Bob was an avid hockey player and a loyal Leafs fan. He loved the water and all things associated with it, e.g., sailing, canoeing, motor boating, fishing, etc. He was a strong swimmer and made a point of ensuring that his family could all swim, eventually installing an in-ground pool at his Lorne Park residence. At other points in his life, he was a bowler, pool player, golfer, tennis player, badminton player, gym frequenter... again, the list goes on.

Perhaps best of all, Bob enjoyed travelling, in particular cycling with Nellie and their best friends, Jack and Doris. Together they cycled a lot of terrain, both here and abroad, including Holland and Southern England.

In short, Bob had a full, rich life, for which he was grateful and always ready to give back.

We would like to thank the staff at Mississauga's Trillium Hospital and Credit Valley Hospital for the care he received over the last four years.

To Dr. Ernst and Dr. Lang, whose help over at Credit Valley had been instrumental in getting Bob the extra time he so dearly wanted (to see, among other things, his brother and sisters and their families, the graduation of his grandchildren, and the birth of his great grandson, Nico); to Dr. Di Prizito, who, during Bob's final stay at Trillium, headed up the team of caregivers on his floor who delivered exceptional care; to Dr Hung and Dr Tang, the palliative specialists and nurses whose compassion and understanding we shall never forget:

THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.

A Memorial Reception will be held at Glen Oaks Funeral Home Reception Lounge, Oakville on November 8th from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
