March 15, 1937 – October 28, 2021
It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Robert Larade in Courtenay on Thursday October 28, 2021 surrounded by his family.
Bob was born on March 15, 1937 in New Waterford, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, the youngest child of Honora Cathcart and Simeon Larade. Bob was predeceased by his wife of 63 years Anne, his parents, his brothers Clare and Joseph, and his sister Helen.
Bob is survived by his brother Greg; his children Denise (Kim Rempel), Cathy (Allison McLellan), Bruce (Vicky Vi), Sharon (Joanne Murrell), Janice (Rob Shaw), and Susie (Pete Gillespie); his grandchildren: Adam, Dania, Emory, Jenn, Jesse, Jonathan, Kennedy, Kim, Mandy, Matthew, Mel, Soren, and Tony; and his great-grandchildren: Audrey, Bree, Chloe, Ethan, Gemma, Henry, Hugo, London, Luula, Madison, Theon, Xavier and Zachary.
Bob joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1954, as an Instrument Electrical Technician retiring at the rank of Master Warrant Officer in 1988. His postings included Summerside, P.E.I, 2(F) Wing France, Saskatoon, Gimli, Borden, Summerside, Chatham, Comox, Cold Lake. He served with the Commissionaires Corps in Halifax and Comox from 1988 to 2007.
Bob was an active snooker player at d’Esterre Seniors’ Centre. He loved playing his piano and flying his flight simulator. He excelled at crosswords and loved to share a joke or witty expression. He was fond of family BBQs, nicknames, Coronation Street, and dispensing Papabucks.
The family would like to thank Dr. Neufeld for his ongoing care of Bob, and more recently, the care team of 3A and 3B at the North Island Hospital Comox Valley. At the request of the family, there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Comox Valley Food Bank or a charity of your choice are very much appreciated.Obituary
