MCPHERSON, Robert Donald “Bob” It is with deep sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Bob McPherson, known as “Big Bob” to his family and many friends. He was born February 11, 1955 in New Westminster and passed away Sunday, January 9, 2011 at his cabin at Headwaters. His family will miss him terribly: his mother Marie, his loving wife Twyla, son Troy (Anne) and new granddaughter Arianna, son Travis and grandson Aiden, (his mother Kate), sister Lana (Reg) Scott, and lots of nieces and nephews. He was sadly predeceased by his father Bob.
Bob was a big man who lived a big life and took every ounce of enjoyment that he could. He thrived on adventure and would take anyone along for the ride with him. He was a generous man, always willing to help dig a sled out of a snowbank, rescue a marooned boat or share his last beer. He had a great sense of humor and a joke for every occasion.
Bob was a devoted family man; all of the children that came into his life inevitably had way too much fun with “Uncle Bob” as the line between kid and grownup was sometimes a little blurry.
A celebration of Bob’s life will be held on Thursday January 20th, 2011 at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna B.C. Family and friends wishing to do so may make a donation to “Kids Care Society – Rock 4 Kids,” c/o CKLZ Power 104 FM, 3805 Lakeshore Road, Kelowna B.C.
