Rob was born in Prince George, BC and moved to Campbell River in 1966 with his family and attended Pinecrest Elementary, CRJS and Carihi. He studied Marine Biology, Forestry, Air Craft Mechanics, Electrical and Electronics.

Rob was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hiking, camping, hunting and fishing. In his 20’s, Rob set out across Canada with 2 friends on their bicycles. Rob rode as far as Toronto.

Robert was predeceased by his brother Ronald Petrus and father Jasper Petrus. He is survived by his mother Jane Petrus, sister Heather (Heidi) Petrus, brother James (Jim) Petrus, nephew Sam Hartman. Aunt Sue Vanhoose, and cousins Lea and Shannon from Kentucky. Uncle Don Towers, Aunt Greta, and cousins Theresa, Joe, Joanne and Martha from Red Deer, AB.

We praise God for his eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who Robert acknowledged and accepted as his Savior in the last days of his life.

A Celebration of Life for Robert will be held at 2:30 pm on Saturday Sept.13 at The Christian Life Fellowship Church 445 Merecroft Rd, in the Chapel on the west side.
