PIBUS o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-04-22 published
HANNAN, Robert Clarkson (February 5, 1912-April 19, 2006)
Passed away peacefully in Montreal on April 19, 2006 in his 95th year. Loving husband of fifty-five years to the late Elizabeth Ruth DUCLOS, devoted Father of Joan (Edward (Ted) FLETCHER) and loving Grandpa of Joanne (Derek KENT) and Lynn (Zachary CURRY.) Twin brother to the late Elizabeth PIBUS (Raymond PIBUS) and brother to the late Margaret WALKER. The son of Robert Christopher HANNAN and Laura CLARKSON, Bob was born in Montreal where he lived his entire life, raising his family in Hampstead. He worked as a bond trader before assuming the leadership role with the C.A. Duclos Leather Company, where he worked until his retirement in 1975. In addition to being an astute investor and successful businessman, Bob was a lively sports enthusiast and lived spending time outdoors. He was a highly skilled fly fisherman and enjoyed many years of annual fishing trips with his Friends. Being one of the few men in the group to tie his own flies, he would arrive at the camp every year with an abundant supply of hand-tied flies for everyone. Bob was also an avid skier, and was one of the founding members of the J.B. Ski Club at Mont Tremblant. A life long golfer, Bob was an Honorary Member and past Director of The Royal Montreal Golf Club, where he played many memorable rounds with Friends and family over a period of more than 50 years. While he loved the challenge of the game, it was his respect for the game's traditions and camaraderie that truly fueled his passion. As a past Governor of the Royal Canadian Golf Association, a member of the Canadian Senior Golf Association and the American Senior Golf Association, his zeal for the game took him to many of the world's greatest golf courses. Music was also a passion of Bob's. From his early days of singing in the choir at The Church of the Advent in Westmount and playing the clarinet in the Westmount High School band, you could always catch Bob whistling a tune or tapping his foot to a song he had running through his head. Bob's story telling was legendary - he could always be counted on to enliven a dinner party, a fishing trip or a drink in the 19th hole with one of his memorable jokes. Some of his stories were classics; and although he had told them over and over, his captivating personality, animated delivery, irrepressible sense of humour and wonderful laugh captured the moment. Amongst Bob's greatest attributes were his positive and optimistic approach to life and his ability to make Friends wherever he went. He will be lovingly remembered by all those who had the pleasure of knowing him for his upbeat attitude, his loyalty and strength of character, his straightforward, common-sense approach, his unassuming demeanor and his unwavering ability to live life to the fullest. In this regard, he was an inspiration to his family and Friends. During his last few years, Bob faced the difficulties of dementia with loving support from his family and the caring staff at the Griffith McConnell Residence. He was a truly exceptional person and he will be greatly missed by all. My life's been full, I've savored much, Good Friends, good times, a loved ones touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, don't lengthen it now with undo grief. Lift up your hearts and share with me, God wanted me now, he set me free. A private family service will be held. Donations in Bob's memory to The Pat Fletcher Golf Foundation, 2315 Cohen, St. Laurent, Quebec. H4R 2N7 would be greatly appreciated.
