Passed away peacefully at Matthews House Hospice on May 24, 2019, in his 87th year, following a brief and courageous battle with cancer. Devoted and beloved husband of the late Myrna Sinclair (nee Brown). He will be forever missed by his brother Bruce, children Heather (Richard Wilson) and David, grandchildren (Lindsey, Julia, Stephanie, Matthew) and the extended “Brown Family”.
Bob loved life, had a gift for story-telling and an enthusiasm for cottaging, sports and road trips. He maintained a positive attitude and said he was thankful for the lifetime of wonderful memories he was taking with him.
Bob also leaves behind a cherished group of friends, some of whom were with him from the beginning and some that he was fortunate to discover along the way, but all were a valued and important part of his life. He will be greatly missed by his companion of the last five years, Josee Macintyre. Bob will always be in our hearts and memories.
Born in Toronto, Bob was a graduate of Oakwood Collegiate and Woodsworth College (UofT), and spent his career dedicated to Fiberglas Canada. Bob & Myrna lived in Sarnia, raised their children in Toronto, and enjoyed an active retirement in the community of Greenbriar, Alliston. Over his lifetime, Bob served in many volunteer capacities including coaching, Boys Scouts of Canada, Canadian Executive Service Organization (CESO), and serving on various committees of the United Church of Canada.
A Celebration of Life will be held this summer at the Nottawasaga Inn.
