Rob passed away after a fight with cancer on November 15, 2014.
STEVENSON, Robert Alexander (Rob)
April 7, 1956 – November 15, 2014
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rob on November 15, 2014 in Courtenay, B.C. Rob fought a heroic two-year battle against cancer. He is survived by his loving wife Linda Gilchrist; stepchildren Janine and Ryan; mother Marie Hrynew (Ted); brothers Cliff and Mike (Shelley); sisters Sylvia Antonucci (Danny) and Angela; nephews Tex and Marlowe and niece Georgine. Rob was predeceased by his father Bob Stevenson. Also missing him very much are Rob’s Uncle Sam and cousins; Linda’s mother Betty Gilchrist and her sister Janice and brother Bill and their families. Rob was employed at the Home Depot in Courtenay after a 22-year career at ICBC in Victoria and the Lower Mainland. He will be sadly missed by his coworkers in both locations. Rob loved to travel, play golf, hike and spend time at the beach with family and friends. We will forever treasure the time that we had with him and miss him very much. In lieu of flowers, a donation in Rob’s memory to St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation in Courtenay, B.C. would be appreciated. A Celebration of Life will be held on January 31, 2015 at the Jericho Sailing Club, “The Burrard Room,” 1300 Discovery St, Vancouver, B.C. from 3-6 p.m.
