January 22, 1940 – August 25, 2012
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Bob Wilson.
Bob was predeceased by his parents Bert and Elsie Wilson. He is survived by his loving wife Cleone Beverly Wilson; children Julie, Robbie, Cyndi and Jason and their spouses; mother-in-law Ruth Johson; brother Gordon Wilson and wife Clelia, as well as seven grandchildren.
Bob was the co-founder of the Vitamin House Stores of Vancouver Island. He was the past skipper of MV Jacana. He was an avid fisherman and world traveller who loved life to the fullest.
You will be greatly missed, and your memory will always be carried in the hearts of those love you.
The Broken Chain
We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go
For part of us went with you, the day God
called you home.
You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
