Peacefully passed away at home surrounded by his family on November 4, 2020. Beloved husband of 42 years to Lucie (née Falk). Loving and supportive father of Matthew (Melissa) and Alexander (Michelle). Robert will be missed by his brothers-in-law Michel Falk (Laurel) of Montreal and Alain Falk (Lucie) of Drummondville. Friends will remember him for his love of life and adventure, his positive energy and generous spirit. In the last six years, Bob faced his illness with grace and courage. He was a source of  inspiration and strength to those near him. The family would like to extend their thanks and gratitude to Dr. W. Mason and his team at the Pencer Brain Tumour Centre of PMH, Dr. M. Bernstein of TWH and the Palliative Care team for their compassionate care.

A private cremation will be held on November 7th, followed at a later date, by a Celebration of Life. If you wish to make a donation in Robert's memory, we ask that you consider making it to the Pencer Brain Tumour Centre of Princess Margaret Hospital

Lucie and Family, my deepest condolences to all of you. Hearing this news is just heartbreaking. Bob was so special to me and so inspiring in some many ways, including my career at IBM. He always believed in me and had my back. He hired me into HRBD where I work today and love what I do. Bob was also a great mentor to me during my own cancer journey. I will miss his humour, his passion and his friendship. May he rest in peace and may your many many memories bring you joy and laughter.
