Allison Robert (Bob)

It is with much sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Bob Allison on June 9. With his late wife Dorothy (2005) he was the proud father of daughters Lynn and Laurie and twin sons Russell and the late Rob (2008). He is survived by his sister Ruth Trainor and his friend Shirley Lukala. Bob will be sorely missed by his eight grandchildren Allison, Joshua and James Alderton, Samantha and Callan McCorriston, Tyler Allison and Jacob and Connor Allison. Also by his sons-in-law Jeremy Alderton & Doug McCorriston, his daughter-in-law Jill Brennan- Allison and his many nieces and nephews.

Listening to Bob talk about the people he had met throughout his life made it seem like he knew everybody. From his years as a manager at various Dominion stores, his work at Ford Motor Company in Bramalea, his home away from home at Sand Lake, and from the years spent coaching girls’ and women’s softball, Bob could recall everyone he had ever met and tell stories that always brought a laugh.

Bob was a story teller. His laugh and humor filled any room he was in. Bob was hard not to notice; he was a big man with a big personality and will leave a big hole in all of our lives. We will miss his quick wit, the twinkle that was always in his eye and his larger than life presence. He was Bob.

Visitation to be held at the Andrews Community Funeral Centre (8190 Dixie Rd., Brampton N. of Steeles Ave. 905-456-8190) on Tuesday from 2-4 & 7-9 pm. A Celebration of Bob’s Life will take place Wednesday June 13th, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. in the Chapel. Interment to follow at Brampton Memorial Gardens. If desired donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family.

I will always have memories of visiting Uncle Bob and Aunt Dorothy for many summers, the cottage, their house. Uncle Bob never forgot my birthday. He 'baked me a cake' one year. Took the time to cut the box away, put it in the oven, and had me open the oven to prove that he baked it. He left an imprint on a lot of people's lives. My thoughts are with his close family. Forever loved and always missed.

Lynn, Laurie, and Russell,

Just heard the sad news about your dad. I really enjoyed our visits every time he was here over the last few years. I am glad my kids got the chance to meet him and listen to some of his stories of Bramalea!

Thinking of you here on St. Joseph Island,

Our hearts go out to Bob's family at this sorrowful time. It was a delight to work with Bob. He was always a cheerful soul with a story to tell. But he was also a great listener and would always remember the last conversation we had, even after his retirement. We will miss his visits. Rest in peace Bob.
