BARR, Robert Matthew (October 15, 1918 - May 23, 2003)
Bob died peacefully at the Southlake Regional Health Centre on May 23, 2003, surrounded by his family. Predeceased by his loving wife of over 50 years, Christine Philp BARR; he will be lovingly remembered and missed by his five children and their spouses: Brian (and Joan) BARR of Toronto, Janice FOX (and Bill HOWLETT) of Toronto, Brenda TOOMBS- ERNST (and Bob ERNST) of Newmarket, Colleen McCONNELL (and Sam FUNK) of Pt. St. Lucie, Florida, and Robert (and Dawn SIMKIN) BARR of Barrie. Treasured by his grandchildren: Patty (and Graham) ASCOUGH of Brisbane, Australia, Michael (and Andra) BARR of Toronto, Jeffrey FOX of Toronto, James FOX of Toronto, Matthew (and Brandy) McCONNELL of Pt. St. Lucie, Florida, Christine McCONNELL of Tennessee, Darcy TOOMBS of Newmarket. Beloved great-grandfather of Jonathon and Andrew ASCOUGH of Australia, Kristopher and Meghan BARR of Toronto. Bob's wide ranging interests were pursued with larger than life passion; baseball, music, parties, horse racing, golf, cars, boating, bridge, gambling and travel. His entrepreneurial business career spanned 50 years and was equally successful and prolific: tool and die making, furnaces, foundries, golf courses, coal mines, oil wells and fitness clubs. He was the epitome of the song ''My Way''. Friends may call at the Roadhouse and Rose Funeral Home, 157 Main Street South, Newmarket, on Monday, May 26 from 7-9 p.m. A Funeral Service will be held in the chapel on Tuesday, May 27th at 2: 30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation, Newmarket, Ontario, would be appreciated.
