KOCH, ROBERT (Bob), January 23, 1933 – Thursday, May 17, 2012
A long time resident of Campbell River since 1957, he was the “Bob” in Bob’s Hardware and then could later be found helping customers at West Fraser / Revelstoke. He loved the outdoors, canoeing/kayaking, fishing and camping with his friends and family. For a period of 10 years from 1989 until his health prevented him from riding, he could be seen peddling his bicycle around town, raising funds in support of the BC Lung Association.
Bob was a person who loved life and he always had a big smile for everyone. He invested his time and energy in his family, friends and community. Bob was deeply loved by
his wife Shirley, children Steven and Susan, and Shirley’s children Bruce, Sandy and Cheryl. He was a loving grandfather to 8 grandchildren and still on friendly terms with his first wife Dorothy. He leaves behind many great memories that will ensure that his contribution to life lives on and he will be remembered forever by his big, friendly smile.
A memorial was held at St. Patrick’s church, 34 S. Alder St, at 11 AM on Tuesday, May 22, 2012, where we will all gathered to send him off on his next big bicycle ride.
