December 28, 1937 – December 7, 2022
In loving memory ~
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Robert Colvin “Bobby” at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital on Wednesday December 7th, 2022. Bobby was born in New Westminster on December 28th, 1937.
Bobby was in several care facilities before arriving at Birch Lodge 27 years ago. At his new home Bobby was made to feel special and was so loved, he actually thought he was running the place. We, his family are forever grateful to the staff at Birch Lodge for the love and care Bobby was given. Thank you to Gail Mooney who was Bobby’s main care giver until she semi-retired. Bobby often said that he had had the same women for over 20 years.
As new clients came to Birch Lodge, we were told that he helped them settle in. He also reminded the staff about different birthdays and appointments, less they forget.
Bobby leaves behind his sisters Shirley Mitchell (Fred) and Janice Chapman. He was Uncle Bobby to nephew Jim Mitchell and nieces Patti Mitchell (Larry), Cathy MacPherson (David) and Ashleigh McLaughlin (Justin). Bobby was predeceased by his parents John and May Colvin, his sister Sandra Bell, his brother-in-law George Bell and his nephew Ken Bell.
Bobby loved birthdays. We will be celebrating his 85th birthday on December 27th with cupcakes made by his great niece Gillian and helium balloons which he loved.
To know Bobby was to love him and he was loved so much.
Until we meet again, rest in peace dear Bobby.
