ROBERT (Bob) ARNOLD MUIR

June 29, 1931 – March 26, 2016 

We are sad to announce the sudden passing of Bob after a brief stay at NRGH.  He was born in Comox, BC and is predeceased by his parents, Ronald and Elizabeth Muir.

He is remembered and loved by his wife, Cathy of 54 years, son Stephen, daughters Jennifer (Fred), Sharon (Dave), as well as 7 grandchildren Warren, Genene, Michelle, Carolyn, Mark (Jeananna), Scott, Kevin and 2 great-grandchildren Shawn and Kayden. He will be missed by his sister Norma (Lowell), niece Susan (Joe).  

Bob worked for Comox Logging and Rail Company and spent 36 years with Lafarge Canada before retiring in 1996. He was a master at building model planes and later excelled at model railroading where he filled half his basement with a model train layout of great detail. His latest passion became flight simulation.  Bob also enjoyed many years of boating and camping with family and friends. His greatest joy was spending time with his family.  

A celebration of Bob’s life will take place April 11, 2016 at First Memorial Funeral Services, 1720 Bowen Road, Nanaimo, BC at 1:30pm. Flowers are gratefully declined; donations in Bob’s memory may be made to BC Heart & Stroke Foundation.  

Our sincere thanks to Dr. Love and Dr. Dabu and all the nurses at NRGH for their care of Bob. The family would also like to thank everyone for the flowers, cards and support at this time.
