COULTER, Dr. J. Robert " Bob"
At Mountain Lea Lodge, Bridgetown, Nova Scotia in his 93rd year, peacefully on the evening of July 12th. Bob was predeceased by his wife of 67 years, Margaret Allison McFADDEN and is survived by his children, David (Jen LOCK,) Lee (Jackie RETZLAFF,) and Jan (Janet LARKMAN.) He was predeceased by his sister Dawn, and survived by siblings Doris, Jack and Bruce. Bob's early life was a vibrant mixture of academics and athletics. He obtained his B.A. in English in 1935, played varsity football for University of Toronto 1933-35, and was captain in '34 and was the first recipient of the ' Johnny Copp Trophy' in '35. Bob was quarterback of the Toronto Argonauts in 1936, '40, and '41. In 1946, he obtained an honours degree in English along with his Teacher's Certificate. From 1936 to 1954, Bob taught English, French, History, and Phys Ed at North Toronto Collegiate Institute. In that time was the War. From 1942 to 1945 Bob was a Flying Officer with Pilots Wings. From 1954 to 1958 Bob taught both English and French and was head of U of T's Extension Department responsible for adult education. In 1958 Bob became headmaster of St. Andrew's College in Aurora, Ontario, a boys independent school where he stayed until retirement in 1974. During his tenure at the University of Toronto Extension and St Andrew's he attended educational conferences including Wales, Nassau, Athens, Georgia, Montreal and the Dominican Republic. The culmination of his career was perhaps June 1 1972 when it was conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Letters from York University. Bob was an avid curling skip, good canoeist, and not-so-patient fisherman! He will be remembered by his quiet, gentle manor and his love of the Bay of Fundy. His children, from the bottom of our hearts, wish to thank all the staff of Mountain Lea Lodge for the ongoing and continued support they provide. This journey would not have been possible without you. Cremation was his choice. A private family event will take place. Donations in memory of Bob would be welcomed to the Palliative Care Department of Mountain Lea Lodge, Bridgetown, Nova Scotia B0S 1C0.
