Jamieson, Robert Jr.
1937 ~ January 26, 2016
It is with great sadness to announce the passing of Robert (Bob) Jamieson on January 26th in Nanaimo. Survived by his three daughters, Pamela (Bill), Andrea, Kimberly (Tim) and his sister, Margaret. His partner, Norma, parents Robert and Elizabeth, brother Campbell and sister Betty predeceased him. Bob leaves behind his grandsons Mitchel, Colton and Parker, nieces and nephew.
Bob was born in Nanaimo and raised in Northfield. His first job was distributing the Free Press until the age of 15 years, at which time he began delivering telegraphs on his bike for the CPR. Bob eventually moved to Campbell River, working for the CW Schultz surveying company. When Bob returned to Nanaimo, he began his career with the Canadian Pacific Telegraph Company working on a “gang” line crew raising poles up and down the Island. Bob worked as a Communication Lineman for many years, until his job ended. He then began his second career at Harmac working in the No. 1 Woodroom and Phoenix until retirement. Bob’s passions were camping, fishing, travelling and spending time in Bowser. Bob will be missed for his witty sense of humour and enjoyment for life. The family would like to thank Dr. R. J. Van Rensburg and, the nurses and support staff for making Traveller’s lodge a place to call home. A private celebration of life will take place.
