Robert Brynt Marshall

Robert Bryant Marshall

August 8, 1923 – December 14, 2014

Bob was born August 8, 1923 in Anyox, BC – near the Alaska pan-handle as Bob would like to tell you. He spent most his later youth between Harrison Mills and Burnaby BC. Bob had an eclectic career path, with jobs ranging from logger to welder, airforce man to tire salesman.

He and his wife Ina came to Salt Spring in 1964 where they re-opened and operated what was to become the Ships Anchor Inn. After Ina’s death in 1972, Bob continued his job quest working in construction, the travel business, and finally, at BC Ferries. Bob had the good fortune to meet Marjorie Cade in 1980 and they have enjoyed a full and happy 34 years traveling, golfing and hosting numerous gatherings at “the Lake”.

Bob was known for his offbeat sense of humour, his immediate stubborness followed by quick compromise, and most especially for his love of Marj, family and friends.

Bob will be greatly missed by Marjorie, daughter Christina (David Toynbee), step-children John Cade (Debbie), Barbara Cade (Brad Cunningham), six grandchildren: Lucas, Jessie, Christopher, Barbi, Jenni and Damon; and two great-grandchildren: Oliver and Cade.

The family would like to thank the caring staff at Lady Minto Acute and Extended care, as well as his caregiver and friend Tracy Stibbards.

A memorial will be held for Bob, at Cusheon Lake, in the Spring.
