ROBERT (BOB) FIELD (published on April 21, 2006)



ROBERT (BOB) FIELD June 17, 1923 - April 19, 2006 Robert (Bob) Field peacefully passed away at the Victoria Hospital on April 19, with family at his side. In his ever organized way Bob left a few words that he asked the family to share... Bob is survived by his wife, Marie, who he loved and respected very much, referring to her as his angel of mercy . He affectionately called his daughters, Jacquie and Patti, the two rotten kids and was very proud to say that they were his fault . He also considered his four grandchildren, Matthew Rayner, Darryl Conrad, Grant Rayner and Dana-Marie Conrad as the very best there ever was. Of his two sons-in-law, Brad and Greg, Bob would repeatedly say that if he were picking them out for the rotten kids he would have made the same choice as they did. After serving five years in the Royal Canadian Navy, Bob was employed by CN Rail in many different positions. This career spanned 50 years and he was one of those who found each job interesting. For this reason, he always claimed he didn't work a day in his life. He really believed he had an angel looking after him and thought that everyone should be as lucky as he was... The family will always remember Bob for his loyalty, zest for life and positive outlook. His ability to design anything and to solve even the most difficult problems was amazing. He loved to work with his hands, creating any item imaginable from wood. His cottage at Pickerel Lake is a testimony to this. He left us with many life lessons like, the harder you try the luckier you get . The lessons you have taught us will be with us always. Our heart-felt thanks to Dr. Moran de Muller, and Shirley Poetker for the ongoing support, compassion and exceptional care they have shown our family. We would also like to thank the 5th floor staff at the Victoria General Hospital for their kindness and support. At Bob's request, there will be a private family celebration of his life. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation.
