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
would be appreciated by the family.
