He is survived by his heart-broken wife and best friend Pam, daughter Taylor, son Lucas, and
granddaughter Evolyn, who arrived just in time to spend some quality time with her “buddy”.
He could not have loved his parents-in-law, Bill and Avis Quarrie, more if they were his own. Rob was an amazing father who loved to spend time with his kids watching them excel at whatever they did. He was beyond proud that both children have chosen to be first responders and was happy to almost see them both achieve those goals. He will certainly be with each of them in spirit as they graduate. Rob was an avid sports fan and thoroughly enjoyed endless hours on the rugby pitch, soccer field, swimming pool and hockey rink. There was nowhere Rob would rather be than with his family and friends.
Rob will be missed by his many friends who were a great source of joy and entertainment throughout his life and a comfort near the end. He enjoyed many campfires, hikes, fishing trips, dinners, parties, BBQs, card games, car rides and trips with the friends he knew he was very lucky to have.
Rob was an avid outdoorsman who particularly loved camping, canoeing and fishing. His yearly visits to Algonquin will be continued by his family as that was his “happy place” and we will continue to find solace along Highway 60. An animal lover, he trained his Boxers to be near perfect pets. Taz, Darby and Cash will be waiting for him to go for a nice long walk when he arrives.
Special thanks to Dr. Hahn and Nurse Ram, the ParaMed nurses, as well as all of the support staff working out of the LHIN Clinic. Your support and guidance through this difficult time was so appreciated.
We will forever miss Rob’s sense of humour, smile, loyalty, willingness to help out anytime and his love of all things family and friends. Cremation has already taken place. When we are able, we will celebrate Rob’s life and share happy memories of the too short time that we were blessed to have him in our lives.
We love you, Rob / dad / grampa, and we will always hold you near to our hearts. Thank you
for adding so much more to our lives than you could ever know! We will all miss you! XO
