It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Robert Stewart, a dear stepfather, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend in PAH on May 29, 2013. Bob was predeceased by his beloved partner of 31 years Helen Richmond in 2006. Bob leaves to mourn his stepdaughter Elaine Peloquin (Leo), granddaughter Alicia White (Ryan) grandsons Craig and Daryl Peloquin, great-grandsons Brent, Blake, Trey and Noah and his good friend Jack Gunion.
Bob was born in Ferryhill, (Durham) England on October 16, 1933 the only child of Maria and Robert Stewart. He left England at 14 years of age to explore the world. Bob worked in Australia and New Zealand, finally arriving in Canada in the 60’s. He worked in the coal mines and later as a seamen on the freighters which enabled him to see the world. After meeting Helen in 1975 they began to travel and visited Singapore, Mexico, Australia, and their beloved Hawaii where they spent their winter months every year until her death in 2006. Bob loved to walk to Semiahmoo Mall every day and have coffee and to buy his Lotto tickets! He enjoyed meeting with his many friends there and will be sadly missed. A special Thank you to Dr. Sidney Field and the caring staff at PAH. There will be no service by request. The family will be having a gathering of family and friends at a later date.
