Burnaby Bob

"Burnaby Bob"

We regret to announce that Bob passed away at home on March 17, 2013. Born in Burnaby on February 5, 1054, he was predeceased by his father Ted (1976), mother Diane and sister Mary in 2012. Bob leaves behind his brothers Richard and Jim (Brenda), former wife Nancy, brother-in-law Peter and his neices and nephews. As well as his long time friends who really are an extended family that he chose, the Churchs, and the Thompsons, the Point Roberts group, and a host of other friends and family.

A long time fixture on the local trucking scene, he worked for CP Transport, Van-Kam, Futura, Firebird, NW Transport and Yellow YRC. He could always get people laughing by either his words or his antics.

Our family comedian, generous to a fault and a loyal friend, where ever Bob was, there was always laughter. Bob was a proud long time resident of Burnaby, where he lived virtually all his life , a Teamster and consummate collector of license plates, matchbooks and other memorabilia.

"He died from living."

A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, June 2, 2013 starting at 1pm at 21110 40th Avenue, Langley, BC.

In honour of "Burnaby Bob", smoking and drinking will be encouraged.
