Bob (Hugh Robert) NISBET
July 4, 1942 ~ August 10, 2013
Bob was born in Nanaimo, BC. He lived most of his life at Cassidy, BC, then moved to Extension, BC. He graduated from Nanaimo Secondary School then began his working career at Crofton Mill. After early retirement, he pursued many interests – hiking, canoeing, kayaking, hunting, fishing, photography, music, road trips, reading and listening to stories of the olden days. Bob was extremely dedicated to safety. His vehicles were always expertly maintained and of course, always polished. In his later retirement years Bob met his partner and companion, Maudine. They shared interests including travel and cooking.
Bob was predeceased by his mother, Rose; and his infant daughter, Dynette Dawn. He is survived by his sons, Rob, and Dayle (Ellie); their mother, Jean; his grandchildren: Andy, Jake, and Jazmine; as well as sisters, Sheila and Sharron; and brother-in-law, Carl Anderson; his father, Hugh of Ladysmith and Maudine.
Bob was taken tragically in Victoria, BC. We have broken hearts, but memories that will last a lifetime. When you remember Bob, please honor him by helping others as he did, caring for the environment and taking quiet moments to enjoy the beauty of planet earth.
