It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Allan Robert (Bob) Barker on July 11, 2008 at Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria.
He was born on Canada Day in Hazelton, British Columbia in 1924. He always ensured the maple leaf was flying on his birthday. There are many people that will miss him deeply, especially his loving wife of thirty years, Barbara.
He is survived by six children: Wendy (Jeremy) Fry, Jim (Barbara) Barker, John (Barbara) Barker, Pam (Keath) Seeton, Lori (James) Wilkinson and Nancy (Gordon) Wright. His first wife, Shirley, and his son, David, predecease him. Bob leaves 12 grandchildren all of whom enjoyed their time with Gramps on the Salt Spring Island farm. He also leaves one great-grandchild in Australia.
The bridge table is missing a fourth.
