In Loving Memory ~
Rob passed away in Victoria from a series of health issues. He was predeceased by his father (Robert).
He leaves behind his mother Jacqueline, and sister Kelly, as well as his beloved niece Taylor, and beloved nephews Grayson and Reid.
Also mourning his loss is his Ontario family (Greg, Pam, Bonnie, and Linda). Rob also left behind many close friends, in Victoria, Courtenay, and Duncan who cared for him deeply and supported him. He was a very social person who attended Village Park Elementary, Robb Jr. Secondary, and Vanier.
Rob enjoyed many road trips with friends including Bob, Gerry, and Tim among others. He worked for Overwaitea Foods, built houses with his father, spent time as a pilot teaching flying in Nanaimo.
More recently, he worked for the BC Government and Hewlett Packard as a Systems Analyst. He enjoyed nearly everyone he met and often asked about his friends back in Courtenay.
Rob liked the outdoors and spent time in the past snowmobiling, with a core group of friends at the cabin, skiing on Forbidden Plateau, and was one of the first snowboarders on Mt. Washington. He enjoyed windsurfing at Nitnat Lake and many day hikes.
He loved to travel but his travel was cut short by health concerns.
While in Victoria, he enjoyed attending Burning Man, Santacon and other events. He spent his last years in an apartment overlooking the cruise ships in the Victoria Harbor listening to his favorite tunes.
He will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him. Rob was a sensitive soul who cared deeply. Please take time to reach out to those living alone.
A celebration of Rob’s life will be held in the summer.
