October 11, 1953 – March 16, 2019
It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Robert. Robert passed away peacefully after a short battle with cancer. He is survived by his daughter Hannah Enns, his son Corby Enns (Tanis) and his granddaughters Brynlyn and Oaklyn.
Robert was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba to June (nee Kristiansen) and Robert Thomson. As a child he travelled and lived in many places as his father was a pilot in the Canadian Air force. Some of Roberts fondest memories were his time as a teenager living with his family in San Antonio, Texas.
As a young man Robert decided to “go west” and became a tree planter. He had a special connection with the outdoors and continued this with a career as a hunter’s guide. Although he spent the rest of his life living out west he always came home to Ottawa to visit his family.
He is survived by his father Robert Thomson, his brother Ian (Fran), his sisters; Heather, Laura and Margaret (Stewart).
He will be greatly missed by all of his wonderful friends and the special people in his life.
We will miss his great big smile and his even bigger heart.
A celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, March 23rd at the Eagles in Rossland. From 1 – 4 pm.
