BARRY, Robert Charles. Oct. 8, 1933 – Oct. 21, 2012. With sorrowing hearts we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother and brother-in-law. Bob was born in Agassiz, BC on October 8, 1933 and lived in Yale for a good portion of his life. Bob was predeceased by his parents and grandparents. He is survived by his loving wife Maurine of 57 years, sons: Bruce (Trish), Maurice (Cindy), daughter: Catherine (Chris), brother: William (Bill) (Diane), five grandchildren, six great grand children, nephews and niece.
Bob’s working life started out for the C.P.R. but he decided that wasn’t the job for him. He then went to work for the Dept. of Highways, surveying around the province. In 1968 he took over his parent’s store of which the family are still operating today. He was Canada Post Postmaster in Yale from 1970 – 2000. Bob enjoyed his many card games, shuffling the decks. He was a former member of Mount Hope Lodge No. 139A.F & A. M. and Canyon Chapter No. 70 O.E.S. Yale Ratepayers and Yale Historic Society. Thank you to the nurses and doctors at Fraser Hope Lodge and Heritage Village in Chilliwack for their care of Bob over the past 12 years. Please join the family for a Celebration of Life on Saturday, November 3, 2012 at 2 pm at the Historic St. John the Divine Church in Yale. Refreshments to follow at the Yale Community Centre.
