Robert Callan Hayter


November 1934 – March 2012

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Robert (Bob) Hayter. Bob passed away peacefully surrounded by family.

Bob was born in Vancouver,but he always considered Salmon Arm, B.C. his

hometown. There, he helped his father build the Starlite Drive-Inn Theatre,

and, with the help of his sister and mother, this family-run business became a key attraction in the north Okanagan.

After high school, Bob worked for the Bank of Nova Scotia and moved around a great deal, eventually ending up in

Terrace, B.C. where he met his future wife, Linda Timm. Along the way, they had two children, Evelyn and Martin.

Bob is survived by his dearly loved wife of 52 years, Linda Hayter, his daughter, Evelyn Johnson (Doug), his son,

Martin Hayter, and twin sister, Blanche Radons (Al). Bob also leaves behind two cherished grandchildren, Ashley and Jordan Johnson.
