A lifetime resident of the Winchester area, Robert (Bob) St. Pierre, passed away early in the afternoon on Wednesday, March 21, 2012, at Winchester District Memorial Hospital. He was 64 years young.
Robert was born in Winchester on September 7th, 1947, to his parents Leo Paul and Cecile St. Pierre (nee Gagnon). He was one of five children; Yvonne, Robert, Suzie, Roger and Bernard.
On April 25th, 1970, Robert was blissfully wed to Suzanne (nee Johnston). He was a farmer by trade and an avid curler and golfer at heart.
In his retirement he added “Chef” to his list of attributes, much to the satisfaction of his family.
Robert’s memory will live on in his wife Sue, his sons Jason and Mark, their wives Cathy and Karen, and his much cherished grandchildren Aleisha, Bryce, Sebastien and Chloe.
He is survived by his father Leo Paul of Embrun, his siblings Yvonne (Ken) Lavigne of Bowmanville, Suzanne St. Pierre of Ottawa and Roger St. Pierre of Ottawa, as well as by many nieces, nephews and cousins.
He was predeceased by his mother Cecile and his brother Bernard.
In tribute to the way Robert lived, a celebration of life was held at the Marsden and McLaughlin Funeral Home in Williamsburg on Sunday, March 25th at 2 p.m. followed by a luncheon at his second home, the Cedar Glen Golf Course.
Donations to Winchester Hospital would be appreciated by the family. Online condolences may be made at marsdenmclaughlin.com.
Robert’s family expressed their gratitude to everyone who assisted with his rehabilitation after his surgery and to the caring staff at WDMH who made his last days as meaningful and comfortable as possible.
