ARDIES; Robert Grant
Robert Grant (Bob) Ardies, born June 1, 1930, passed away peacefully in his sleep at noon Monday, November 21 at the Christine Morrison Hospice in Mission, BC. Bob was surrounded by family as his long struggles with failing health were completed, and he joined his Savior for eternity. Bob is survived by his beloved wife Rose, his children Bob, Murray and Patty, Rick and Sheila, Kelly and Don, and Patrick, as well as 10 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. Robert was born and raised in Winnipeg, MB where he worked for Emco Supply for 39 years. He and Rose moved to Nanaimo in 1990 where they began retirement. Later moves to Calgary, Harrison Hot Springs and finally to Abbotsford all gave wonderful opportunity to live close to family and to make new friends. After a life well lived, Bob will be sadly missed. As family, we extend special thanks to the nurses, volunteers and doctors of the Christine Morrison Hospice. Your loving, compassionate care was exemplary and you surrounded Bob and his family with comfort and encouragement. Thank-you. A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, November 25 at 1:00 pm at the Bakerview MB Church in Abbotsford. In lieu of flowers, donations to the BC Cancer Society would be appreciated.
