Aiken – Robert (Bob) Leon

1930 March 19 – 2010 July 30

It is with sadness that

the family of Bob Aiken

announce his passing in

Calgary, AB.

Dad spent his childhood

in Saskatchewan and

for a time resided at

the Indian Head Orange

Home. His chosen career

was in heavy-duty

mechanics and he held

positions on the DEW

Line and with Finning

Tractor before opening his own business at Tri-way

Centre in the 1970. Dad’s greatest passion was the

restoring of classic cars and his most prized possession

was his 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk.

Dad is survived by his loving wife of 57 years Ruth

(nee Leichert); his children, Kathy Coates (Paul),

Stephen Aiken (Denise) and Jennifer DeLeon (Luis); as

well as his siblings, June Huber, David Aiken, Shirley

Oleski, Doug Aiken and Pat Aiken; 8 grand children

and 2 great grand children. He was predeceased by his

beloved daughter Carol Lynn, his parents Richard and

Leona, his brothers Ted, Gary, Harvey; and his Tante

Lita. Dad will be fondly remember by many people in

Vernon including his Car Club buddies, his friend and

apprentice Rene Brunelle and the many friends who

knew him from Triway.

A celebration of Bob’s life will be held at McInnis and

Holloway’s Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road

SE) on Thursday, August 5th at 3pm. Interment to follow

in Vernon, BC at a later date. Forward condolences thru

in anyway that touches your heart.
