August 26, 1935 - June 5, 2023
In loving memory ~
Robert (Bob) Redekopp, 86, of Vernon, B.C., passed away on June 5th after a valiant battle with cancer.
Bob was born on August 26, 1935, to Henry and Joyce Redekopp in Penticton, B.C.
In his teen years, he moved with his father to Prince George, B.C., where he lived for many years before moving to Vernon, B.C.
In 1955, he married Grace (Bradford) Redekopp. Recently, they celebrated their 68th wedding anniversary. They had three children: Joyce, Glenda, and Robert (Rob).
Bob worked as a Fireman for CN Rail, as a Correctional Guard at the Prince George Correctional Centre, and as a co-owner at Henry's Café.
After retiring, he spent his time travelling, fishing, gardening, and spoiling his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren as much as possible.
Bob was predeceased by his parents. He is survived by his wife Grace, his sister Flo; his three children, Joyce (Ernie) Forsythe, Glenda (Kevin) Beattie, and Rob (Lhalic) Redekopp; his six grandchildren, Michael (Carol), Bronwyn, Ryan (Rebecca), Joshua (Tina), Colby (Dane), and Abegail; and his thirteen great-grandchildren, Zoe, Maddox, Mia, Patrick, Hazel, Elleora, Isaiah, Samuel, James, Elijah, Mary, Peter, and Jenessa.
Someday, we will meet again.
Of that, I am sure.
