BRYCE, Robert James
Peacefully slipped away on December 3, 2018 on his 85th birthday to join his beloved wife of 55 years, Beverley Anne. He was a loving and devoted father to Lynn and Todd (Penny), cherished Grandpa to Niki Dalton (Keith) and Danny (Katrina) and an amazing Grandpa Bob to his precious great-grand daughter, Avery. Bob is survived by his sisters, Velma and Betty, brother Dave (Arlene) and their families and many cousins, nieces and nephews. After Bob retired from Stelco in 1990 he and Bev spent loads of time with their two grandchildren, who they absolutely adored, making extraordinary memories while riding the tractor, visiting Mountsburg, train and airplane museums, Dundurn Castle, playing hide-and-seek and so much more. He also worked at Carluke Orchards and continued his passion of woodworking, stained glass, ice skating and gardening. Bob was a faithful and lifelong member of Pioneer Memorial United Church where he volunteered. He spent many fun years traveling and summers fishing at Devil Lake. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service to celebrate Bob’s life will be held at Pioneer Memorial United Church, 1974 King St. East, Hamilton, ON on Friday, January 11, 2019, at 11:00 a.m. A private family interment will take place following the celebration. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Parkinson’s Foundation, Children Aid Society of Hamilton or a charity of your choice will be greatly appreciated by the family. Extreme gratitude to The Meadows LongTerm Care Facility, especially the Panabaker resident area for the loving care that Bob received.
