It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Bob Oberle. He was born and raised in Kitchener-Waterloo. He was predeceased by his father William Oberle (1995) and survived by mother Barbara Oberle. Loving father of Erin Oberle. Cherished brother of Pam (Jerry), Dean (Cheryl), Lori (John), Cheryl, Tim and Don (Heidi).
Bob in realizing he was facing a terminal diagnosis wanted to share his written thoughts in a short and personal obituary.
Prepared in advance and knowing I had limited time, I wanted to thank Dr Fortin, Dr. Valdes, Dr. Russek, Dr. Dai, Nurse Chantelle along with the staff and volunteers from the GRH Waterloo-Wellington Regional Cancer Centre for their efforts in helping me manage this disease but, unfortunately, we fell a little short - I wish I had more time!
Most importantly, I would like to acknowledge my love for, and thanks to, my greatest accomplishment, my daughter Erin for giving me the strength and conviction to fight hard; to my sisters Pam and Lori and brother Don for their unwavering love, strength, and support. They worked tirelessly as 'Team Roberto' to help me navigate the toughest and most challenging journey of my life. I want to remind everyone that life can be short so live without regret, take care of your health and appreciate all those who have made a meaningful impact in your life.
Goodbye to all my friends and to those who have shown me unconditional love and kindness - I Love You!
