Bob Roberts


September 21st, 1945
August 7th, 2018

ROBERTS, Bob (Robert Howard). It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bob Roberts. Bob died unexpectedly but peacefully at home in St-Anicet, Quebec on August 7, 2018, at the age of 72. He leaves behind his best friend and wife, Joan Elizabeth Booth, who stood beside him through the challenges and joys of life during their 53 years of marriage. He will be greatly missed by his three daughters, Lynne, Nancy, and Catherine and their spouses Don Chow, Ben Martin, and Frank Gin. His grandchildren Sydney, Rylan, Finlay, Nathan, Henry, and Ella will always remember their beloved Poppy.
Bob was born in Valleyfield, Quebec, on September 21, 1945, the sixth and youngest child of Louisa and Chesley Roberts. Predeceased in recent years by his brothers, Bill and Leonard, and his sister, Ethel. Survived by his sisters, Barbara and Beverly.
Bob attended Gault Institute for all his schooling and worked at Goodyear Valleyfield for over 20 years. An avid hunter and fisherman, he and Joan owned Fantaprix Chasse et Pêche in Valleyfield from 1982 until their retirement in 2007.
He got great joy from his trips “back home” to Blanc Sablon, where he enjoyed fishing and visiting with his extended family, especially his many cousins and beloved aunts Beatrice Goudie and Victoria Roberts.
Bob spent the last years enjoying his retirement by the water, travelling with Joan, and spending time with his grandchildren, and many friends.
The family will be in attendance at Rodrigue Montpetit & Fils Inc. funeral home, 1580, Route 132, St. Anicet, Qc. (450-264-5331) from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 18 followed by a memorial service at 3 p.m. and all are encouraged to bring pictures and stories of Bob to share.
