1944 – 2018
Bob passed away on April 18, 2018 at Royal Inland Hospital, Kamloops, BC. Born to Hungarian immigrants on July 15, 1944, and the youngest of 9 kids, Bob grew up on the farm in Fort McLeod, AB. There he met and fell in love with his childhood sweetheart, Donelda Huntley.
Bob left Fort McLeod to work on the oil rigs in Fort St. John where he later became a successful owner/operator of a power tong company. He and Donelda raised their 3 kids, Lana, Warren and Cara. There wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for his family. He worked hard in the winter and made time for great family vacations in the summer. He wanted and gave the best of everything to his family, who are forever grateful for all that he did and sacrificed for them. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 53yrs, Donelda, who was with him for his last breath. His daughters Lana & Cara, son Warren and his wife April, grandson Spencer and granddaughter Kendal. He was predeceased by his son-in-law Kevin, and his brothers George and Mike.
Forever in our hearts and thoughts, we love you Dad.
A Celebration of Life will be held on July 1st at the family’s summer home in Chase. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.comPrint This Obituary & Condolences
