September 12, 2011

Bob passed away suddenly September 12, 2011 at his home in Fruitvale at the age of 71. Bob was pre-deceased by his loving friend Diane Wells, and his parents Bert and Mildred Canniff. He is survived and deeply missed by his sister Carmel Willford, his brother in-law Sid and many nieces and nephews.

Bob was born in Kaslo and spent most of his time in the Kootenay’s. Bob worked in many places throughout his life including the City of Nelson and Celgar. Bob enjoyed fishing and he loved to dance. He also enjoyed spending time with his sister and her family as well as attending social dinners by his family and all those who knew him.

Bob especially enjoyed his sister’s home made bread and would often arrive for a visit just as the bread came out of the oven.

At bob’s request no service will be held. He hoped that everyone would remember him in their own way.
