Robert Thomas MarionJuly 26, 1952 ~ May 19, 2017 (age 64)
Robert Thomas Marion (Bob) was born July 26, 1952 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He moved to Calgary, Alberta at the age of 14 with his family and later made the move to Smithers, B.C where he lived until the time of his death with his wife Angela by his side. Bob is predeceased by his parents, Tom and Pat; a daughter, Brydie; and two former wives, Brenda and Ina. Bob was married to his angel, Angela, at the time of his death. His is survived by his daughter, Lacie; grandchildren Isa and Payton; great grandchildren, Benjamin and Lincoln; two sisters, Laura (Guy), Bonnie (Don), and a brother, John (Dorothy); and numerous nieces and nephews in Calgary and Vancouver. Bob worked most of his life as a journeyman welder until the time of his retirement. He loved camping and fishing; enjoying trips to Patricia Beach every weekend as a child, and through to his recent adventures at Burn's Lake, B.C. with his beloved Angela. He had a deep commitment to his daughters. The tragic loss of his daughter Brydie was something he would never get over, remaining with him until his passing. Bob watched his daughter Lacie grow into a fine loving mother and although from afar for most of her adolescent and adult life, she was a source of pride for him, having given him Isa and Payton and two lovely great grandchildren whom he wasn't destined to meet. He would often be heard at Church telling anyone who would listen how proud he was to be "not only a grandfather but a great grandfather". Anyone who knew Bob will remember his tremendous sense of humor. He was a great source of inspiration to all who knew him. He endured more than most yet always considered himself “lucky”. No Bob, we were the lucky ones to have had you in our lives. You were loved and will be missed. Rest in peace my husband, my father, my brother, my grandfather, my great grandfather, and my friend.Special thank you goes out to his family physician Dr. Strauss, Home Care nurses, Barb Darnell, BV Smithers Hospital, nurses and staff; all of whom made life easier for Bob. A special thank you also to Father Jake Worley and the congregation of St. James Anglican Church.
