Robert “Bob” Greig Knox


After a brave and heroic battle with cancer, our dear father quietly passed away on January 27, 2010 at the Hospice House in Vernon, BC.

Bob is survived by his 3 children, Eli (Alice) Knox-Wilson, Robert “Rob” Knox and Bonnie-Anne Oja and 3 grandchildren, Tianna Oja, Meghan and Andrew Knox, his mother Reita Knox (Ingle), brother Andrew “Drew” and sister Betty Fiest. He is predeceased by his father Andrew “Scotty” Knox and granddaughter Kayla Oja.

A Celebration of Bob’s Life will be held on Saturday, February 20th starting at 1:00pm at his daughter Eli’s home at 6141 Hwy 97 North in Vernon. This is an open house for family and friends to gather in Bob’s honor and share memories, a few tears and lots of laughter. If you have any pictures, it would be appreciated if you brought them to share with all of us, or maybe just a “wee dram of scotch” to toast his final adventure.

To RSVP or for directions, contact Eli at 250-545-8270 or 250-938-0872.

If so desired, a contribution in memory of Bob Knox to your local SPCA or Animal Control would be appreciated in lieu of flowers.
