Robert “Bob” Gordon Daines

Jul 28, 1938 -Oct 2, 2013

Our world is sadder today as we announce the passing of our husband/Dad. He died peacefully at home on Oct 2nd. Left to lovingly remember his devotion to family and friends, his sense of humour, and his uncanny ability to find trains wherever he traveled, are his wife of 48 years, Jeanette, son Gordon (Laurie), daughter Sandra, sister Bev, and cherished grandsons Lucas and Zachary.

Bob spent much of his life in the Campbell River area, growing up in Camp 5 and attending high school at Carihi.

Bob was an entrepreneur involved in the logging industry for most of his career. He enjoyed working in the woods, often coming home with stories of wildlife spotted, and the natural beauty he saw each day.

We’d like to thank Dr. Marsh, Dr. Prinsloo, the Home Care Nurses, and the Home Support Team for their kindness, care and support during Bob’s illness.

Please join us in a celebration of Bob’s life at the Maritime Heritage Centre on October 18th from 1-4 pm. Donations can be made in Bob’s name to the Campbell River Hospice Society or the Campbell River Museum.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
