"SIZ" 2005 Obituary


SIZE 2005-01-12 published
SMITH, Robert " Bob" J. E.
So peacefully in the loving arms of his cherished wife and best friend Rhea JOY, and surrounded by the love and support of family and Friends, Bob SMITH left us to embark on a new journey January 8th, 2005.
Missing him yet celebrating his ascension are many. His beloved Rhea and children Kerrie and Bepin ZEKA, Li and Dan PRESSEY and Scott & Gloria SMITH will continue to put into practice the lessons learned through his boundless unconditional love, guidance and mentorship. With his love in their hearts forever, his grandchildren, Sarah, Kevin, Niki and Caroline will hold close their memories of storytelling, long walks and conversations about nature, play times and endless snuggles. His sister Evelyn WATRAL will always cherish the strong Friendship that bound them and their families throughout the years and mutual support dating from rural Wardsville, Ontario to present day. He spent many of his most treasured times with his nieces and nephews, Susan and Steve SIZE, Carl and Laura WATRAL and Rob WATRAL. With years of fond memories they will continue to be mainstays of care and support which bind a family together. A large extended family of cousins, sisters and brothers in-law, nieces, nephews and their children can be assured that Uncle Bob cherished our reunions and revelled in watching the children (and adults) play while he caught up on everyone's latest news.
Amongst the many family and Friends welcoming Bob to heaven are his Mother and Father Margaret and Glenn SMITH, Mother and Father-in-law Caroline and Harold THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Brother in-law Walter (Pop) WATRAL. In addition to being a tireless advocate, volunteer, lay minister, faithful and enthusiastic supporter of his church and helper to anyone in the community in greater need than he, Bob was immensely proud of his career at the once Huron and Erie Trust Company, later to become Canada Trust. Starting as a bank teller, Bob rapidly rose through the ranks to become a most respected senior executive. After his “retirement” he utilized his accumulated professional experience to assist his niece Sue at Thorne Property Management Ltd. Following that he embarked upon a third career; that of caregiver, friend, music teacher and chauffeur to his grandchildren.
Special thanks to Dick and Kathy WARREN for their selfless contributions to our family's healing and Pastor Paul BROWNING for his visits and support. To our fellow campers at Sugarbush Campground, Bayfield, Ontario, our family extends our gratitude on behalf of Bob for the many years of friend-ship and fun. To his Trinity United Church family, it was important to Bob that you know how much he appreciated you and that he felt all of your prayers. The caring staff of the Oncology Unit, London Health Sciences Centre Westminster Campus 7th floor, Tower 2 has indelibly etched in our minds what giving is all about.
At his request cremation has taken place and a celebration of Bob's time here will be held at Trinity United Church, 76 Doulton Street (at Hale St.) in London, Ontario, on Saturday, January 15th at 1 p.m. with Pastor Paul BROWNING officiating. A reception will be held in the lower level of the church following the service, in the hope that family and Friends may gath-er for a time of fellowship and remem-brance. Robert James Emiel SMITH wishes that in lieu of flowers, donations in his memory be made to Trinity United Church. Arrangements entrusted to Needham Funeral Service, 520 Dundas Street London.

BALL, Robert David Scott (1944-2005)
Robert (Bob) David Scott BALL died early on July 14th 2005, his 61st birthday. Left to mourn his passing are his beloved wife and soul mate Candace (née WALKER,) his children David and Jodi, their respective spouses Katherine and William, his 11 week old granddaughter, Atlee, his mother Marjorie SIZELAND, his sister Christine, as well as family and Friends around the world. Bob was predeceased by his father, Robert Scott BALL, of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Bob will be remembered for his love of life, passion for family and Friends and the uncompromising way in which he maintained and enriched those relationships. His timely advice and wise counsel were sought by many for whom he was a mentor. He possessed a rare eye for detail that he applied in all aspects of his life, from his love of cooking, to his successful careers in retail, marketing, and his true calling, home renovation. In his last days he fought valiantly against illness, again demonstrating the strength of character that touched the lives of so many around him. Bob will be laid to rest at a private family burial at Mount Pleasant Cemetery on July 16th. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.
