SINCLAIR, Robert Grey
Robert (Bob) passed gently at the age of 94 on April 9, 2008, surrounded by family. He will be profoundly missed by his wife of seventy years, Irene (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON,) their daughters Diane GILDAY (David) and Marilynne SINCLAIR (Brent HOLDEN,) son Gregory SINCLAIR (Kateri LANTHIER) and six grandchildren, Sean (Jane CASKEY), Neil (Kristi SYRON), and Keith GILDAY (Regan BIGGS), and Nicholas, Julia and newborn William SINCLAIR. Robert was the proud great-grandfather of James, Ellen and Walker GILDAY. He was predeceased by his sister Renee DUNTHORNE.
Born in Toronto on July 22, 1913, Robert married Irene in 1937. In 1943, the couple moved to Montreal, where they raised their family, returning to Toronto in 1987. Robert delighted us all with his passion for jazz and swing music - he was a clarinet and saxophone player, and performed in Toronto swing bands by night in the 1930s, while completing Chartered Accountant accreditation by day. He enjoyed a successful career as chief financial officer for a major, Quebec-based construction company. In later years, he and Irene took great pleasure in their cottage on Lake Champlain in upstate New York, hosting innumerable joyful family gatherings. His sense of humour, unshakeable optimism at lowering his golf score 'next time,' and his talent for improvising vivid bedtime stories are indelible memories. We will always cherish the legacy of Robert's gracious, gentle and deeply considerate nature.
The family wishes to acknowledge the thoughtful care and diligence of the staff of the Wellesley Central Place, Robert's home for the last two years of his life. If desired, donations may be made to Wellesley Central Place, 160 Wellesley Street East, Toronto, M4A 1J3.
A family service will be held on Saturday, April 12. Condolences and memories may be forwarded through www.humphreymiles.com.
