Robert (Bob) Burns

December 23, 1921 – January 2, 2003


Bob passed away peacefully at Trillium Lodge,

Parksville, BC


Bob was born in Vancouver and raised in Chemainus and worked his whole life in the logging industry. He was predeceased by his daughter Phyllis and is survived by his only sister Phyllis and his children: Roy (Heather), Bobbie (Buz), Jim (Glenis), Barb (Doug), Rob (Linda), Richard (Christine). He is also survived by 10 grandchildren that he adored.

Dad was a Gallant Victor of Adversity, who taught many valuable life lessons by the way that he lived his life. He played hard, worked hard, then fought hard.


We Love You Dad,

We Love You Grandpa!


Special thanks to Dr. Brad Bell and the caring staff of Trillium Lodge who took special care of Dad the past two years.
