Robert (Bob) Lynwood Chatfield

was born on June 21st, 1948 in Nelson, B.C. and passed away suddenly on August 12th, 2011 at the age of 63 years. Robert will be lovingly remembered by his life-partner and best friend; Sherrie Chatfield, his son; Stephen (Janice Forbes) Chatfield, his daughter; Chellaine (Chris) Harms, his grandchildren; Sarah, Holly, Madelaine, Ryan, Makenna, Lyle and Sharona, his sisters; Joan (Steve) Surinak and Patty-Ann Chatfield as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends. Robert was preceded in death by his parents; Lynwood and Elizabeth Chatfield.

Robert loved the outdoors, especially moose hunting and camping. He was a man with a quirky sense of humor, he loved to laugh and loved to make others laugh. He always said, “ laughter is the best medicine”. Robert was a very loving, giving, compassionate and supportive man who was devoted to his family and friends and a man that always put the needs of others above his own. His passion and feelings came through in his love of music. Robert enjoyed a good rum and pepsi and loved watching poker on tv and being in the game. He had a thirst for knowledge and was always asking questions and considered himself a life-long learner. Robert was heart-broken after his fathers passing earlier this year and is now at peace with his parents.

Cremation preceded a Memorial Service which will be held at Bethel Funeral Chapel on Thursday, August 18th, 2011 at 2:00 P.M. with Mr. Brian Jackson officiating. A Celebration of Robert’s Life will be held Saturday, September 10th, 2011. Please contact family for details.
