April 18, 1942- November 4, 2018
It is with great sadness that I share with you the passing of Robert (Bob) Saunders on November 4, 2018 at Hospice Simcoe. He is survived by his wife Arlene, children Faye, John, Neil, Jim, several step children and many nieces and nephews. Some will remember Bob from his hydro pole climbing days, his time as a town councillor in Cookstown while running his TV sales and repair business. He participated as a costumed clown in some Barrie Shriner parades. His many years as a real estate broker allowed local travel and the opportunity to meet many neighbours. He was an ardent RVer and covered most of North America on road trips while boating on the rivers, streams, and lakes he passed. He always loved to sketch, draw and paint. Many local businesses and homes have examples of his hobby on their walls to this day. He was never happier than when flying a small plane or was ‘on the ice’ curling. He will be considerably missed. The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to the doctors, nurses and staff of RVH for their compassionate knowledgeable treatment. If one wishes to make a donation to Hospice Simcoe it will be greatly appreciated. Bob’s passing will leave a huge space in the many lives he touched.
A private interment service will be held at a family cemetery in Uxbridge, ON.
A Celebration of Life is being held on Friday, November 9, 2018 between 2-4 pm at the Elmvale Legion.
