We are saddened to announce the passing of our father, Robert ‘Bob’ Shea on July 1, 2021.
Born in Lindsay, ON, he would marry his wife, Barbara in the summer of 1969. After short stops in Toronto and Saskatchewan, he would make Calgary his last stop in 1977.
Robert worked in the bindery industry his entire career, yet he was a jack of all trades – building two homes on his own for him and Barb to being the carpenter, electrician, mechanic and plumber for the entire family. Bob enjoyed his time in his workshop, always thinking of the next thing to build or fix. His Sunday ritual was sitting in the shop talking with his friend, Lorry about tools and Nascar while enjoying a Pepsi and cigarette. Other times he could be seen in his garage talking with his good neighbours, Ron and Pierre.
Robert leaves behind his wife, Barbara of 52 years; son Denny (Wendy); daughter, Jill (Chris) Anders; and his pride and joy grandkids, Ty, Nolan, Emma, & Lily; as well as nephews, Johnny & Paul (Simone); niece, Lisa (Shane) and his favourite brother-in-law, David Hines.
At the wishes of Bob, there will be no service. Instead, he would most likely have asked you to go and build something and he will be right there to guide you along the way.
