ROBERT (BOB) ERNEST

March 2, 1935 – July 29, 2014

Bob Alexander died in Penticton after a progressive illness. His wife Gladys and their two children, Carla Alexander (Grant Charles) and Jon Alexander (Lori Ducharme) as well as grandchildren, Piper and Finn, will miss him always. They are very grateful for the kindness, friendship and care he received from the staff and residents at Trinity Care Centre. Born in Winnipeg, Bob lived in Virden, Winnipeg, Regina and Calgary before moving to Kaleden with his wife and children in 1975. He was predeceased by his parents Reta (Collett) and Richard, and his older brother Jack. In his early career as a bank manager with the Bank of Nova Scotia, Bob briefly lived in New York. In Calgary, he was co-owner of Alberta Properties, Bletcher’s Shoe Company (now Alberta Boot Company) and a member of the board for Lariat Oil and Gas. Bob served the community in Kaleden as a volunteer firefighter and real estate agent. Bob was proud to live in the beautiful Okanagan where he managed a small orchard, kept a swimming pool crystal clear for his children, read voraciously, completed crossword puzzles, watched the Blue Jays with dedication, and lived with integrity and humour. There will be a memorial service in mid-September, TBA. Donations may be made to the Parkinson’s Society of BC. Condolences may be shared by visiting www.everdenrust.com
