SMITH, ROBERT JOHN – it is with deep sadness, that we announce the passing of Bob Smith, in his 71st year on Sunday December 4. After five years of battling several chronic illnesses, and most recently the effects of COPD, his body decided it was time for a rest. Although there is comfort in knowing that he is at peace from his suffering, he will be deeply missed by all who knew him. He leaves behind two young grandsons who were his greatest treasures in life, Maxwell and Phoenix. Anyone who knew him, knew that his daughters were his pride and joy. A true family man, everything he did in his life was for his kids. He leaves holes in the hearts of Mindy and her husband Chris, and Traci and her partner, Todd. He loved his ‘sons’ every bit as much as he did his daughters. Also grieving are his siblings, Charlie (Lorraine), Everett (Ada), Rick (Bev), Larry (Carolyn), Dianne (Tim), and sister-in-law Theresa. Fondly remembered by numerous nieces and nephews. Previously deceased by parents Charles and Florence, siblings Shirley, Albert, George, Gloria and Gayle, and grand-daughter Abby. Bob was a retiree from General Motors in St. Catharines where he worked for thirty years. He loved fishing, classic cars and a good steak and lobster dinner.

Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of his life will take place on Saturday, December 10 at 3:00 P.M. at the LAMPMAN FUNERAL HOME, 724 Canboro Road, Fenwick. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

    Our heartfelt condolences to the Smith family. Smitty was a good friend and I enjoyed our lunches with him and Kerry. Sorry I can’t make it to the service.

  • Condolences to the family and friends of Robert John Smith. Bob, a pleasant man I had great respect for. I will miss the enjoyable conversations with him. How his face would lite up when he talked about his daughter’s, son in-laws and grandsons, he was so proud of all of them. Bob was someone I could call a friend from the first time we met. His struggle with illnesses was inspiring, never to complain, always positive, always smiling. Bob will be sadly missed. His smile and memories will be a comfort.
