Obituary of Robert Wayne "Bob" Byrnes
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Bob after a very short battle with an aggressive cancer. Beloved husband of Katherine. Father of Kristen and Jennifer (Randy). Grandfather to Amelia and Noah. Pre-deceased by his parents Harold and Ruth. Brother to Maxine, pre-deceased by Lynn (Darlene), and Bryan (Cheryl). He will be greatly missed by his many nieces, nephews, family and friends.
Bob found joy in his family, reading, being outside in nature and wood working. He was actively involved in many aspects of his community including Christ Church in Waubaushene and the Township of Georgian Bay Libraries. Bob was a retired teacher in Etobicoke.
Bob’s request was to be cremated and a celebration of his life will be held in late Spring or early Summer of 2023. As an expression of sympathy, donations in memory of Bob may be made to the Township of Georgian Bay Libraries, to the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre “Oncology Department” or to Christ Church, Waubaushene and may be made through Coldwater Funeral Home.
