Capt. Albert William Robert (Bob) Penn

Bob passed away peacefully on July 24th, 2009 in the North Okanagan Hospice House, Vernon, B.C. During his 80 years of life traveling the world, 65 of those were spent at sea doing what he loved. He led a very interesting life and has given many wonderful memories to those he left behind.

Bob is survived by his wife Shirley; three daughters, Suzanne (Tom), Wendy (Russ) and Bobbie (Brent); seven grandchildren, Cara (Mike), Cheryl, Michael, Jennifer (Ryan), Clayton, Jacqueline (Ray) and Crystal; and three great-grandchildren.

We have to be apart, we know,

but thoughts of you,

are never far from our minds.

Your love still wraps around us,

like the warmth of summertime,

but we long to feel,

your arms around us too.

While you are sleeping,

we will be dreaming of you.

Until we can all be together again,

remember the love,

that is waiting always for you,

and you alone.

As many waves are on the sea, all our love we send to thee.

We love you, my husband Bob, our Daddy and Grandpa.
