It is with great sorrow that we say goodbye to our dear son and brother who passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, October 8, 2009 at the age of 29.  He is survived by his loving family: Mother and step-Dad Susan and Gordon Heffernan; his father Paul Sanderson; brother Daniel O’Leary (Jennifer); his Gran Marie Sharp; Aunt Leslie Sharp (David) and his cousins.  Despite the major setback of his life which resulted in serious brain injury, Rob fought hard to regain his ability to communicate.  He was inspirational as a compassionate, generous young man who was

passionate about life and his friends.  A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, October 15th at 1:00 pm at Willow Park Church, 439 Highway 33 West, Kelowna, BC.  Cremation – interment to follow at a later date.  Should family and friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to Braintrust Canada, #11-368 Industrial Avenue, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 7E8.  Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting, 250-860-7077.
