Blenheim Community Funeral Home
Monday December 4, 2017
6:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Robert Philip “Bob” Roy of Blenheim passed away at home on Tuesday November 28, 2017 at the age of 74 years. He will be remembered with great fondness by his daughter Cindy & Shane Sykes of Merlin, his son David & Michelle Roy of Cedar Springs and their mother Lyn Delong (Gord) of Blenheim. He was the proud grandfather of Brooklyn, Kennedy, Austin and Caelan. Bob’s heart was broken earlier this year when his daughter Karrie-Ann passed away.
Born in Hearst Ontario, Bob was one of eight children born to the late Angeline & Emile Roy. He is survived by his sisters Rachelle Roy (Peter Cryne), Lucy & Gord Goulah, Sue Rogers (late John), Jeanne Vardy and Lise & Lionel Dodd and by his brother Paul Roy. He was predeceased by his brother and best friend John Roy (survived by Elise) in 2015.
Bob was a self-employed auto body repairman who was retired within the past couple of years but still kept busy with some smaller projects. He will be missed by many friends and business associates.
Cremation has taken place. Friends and family are invited to gather at the Blenheim Community Funeral Home on Monday December 4, 2017 for a time of visitation from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. Friends wishing to remember Bob are encouraged to consider making a donation to the Chatham-Kent Hospice in Karrie’s name.
