April 28, 1942 – April 19, 2015
After a courageous, painful 9 year battle with cancer, with family by his side and his wife & best friend Carol looking into his eyes, Bob finally said “I’ve had enough.” Bob was born and raised in Summerland BC, where he enjoyed the outdoors, hanging out with friends and getting into general mischief and playing practical jokes… After Bob was done with school he moved to Chase BC, where he met, fell in love and married the love of his life Carol. In 1972, with wife Carol and their 3 girls (Brenda, Rhonda and Dawn), Bob moved to Penticton BC to become part owner/operator of Bleasdale Ford Tractor Sales Ltd. Bob remained part owner/operator for the next 32 years when he finally sold the business and retired. With Carol forever by his side, Bob enjoyed sitting by the lake at Little Shuswap, a cold beer in hand and sunshine on his face. Bob was predeceased by his father Walt, mother Ethel and brother Bill. Bob’s wife Carol will forever cherish their 50+ years together and will always love and honor her husband. Bob will be sadly missed by his children Brenda (Michael Bussiere), Rhonda (Mike Stubban) and Dawn (Kelly Jones). Saying goodbye to their beloved PAPA are his 11 grand children Shelby, Taylor, Monique & Jacob Bussiere, Ryan & Mathew Stubban, Kaitlyn (Kurtis Munro), Courtney (Kyle Ulch), Matthew, Brayden and Mackenzie Jones.
WE LOVE YOU PAPA!!!!
