Robert (Bobby) Mark Toole
It is with shock and sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Bobby, peacefully in his sleep, at home in Kamloops.
Bobby was raised in Watson Lake with his siblings. Growing up in the Yukon Bobby loved all that the wilderness offered, camping, fishing, climbing mountains and hunting. It only seemed natural that he guided for several years for his parents’ outfitting business.
He started a career with Yukon Electric in Watson Lake and Beaver Creek. His work with BC Hydro led him and his wife Debbie and their young family to various towns and communities in BC.
Bobby eventually retired in Kamloops. He loved the hot and dry weather it offered. Bobby took up gardening, taking great pleasure in growing vegetables, tomatoes and even watermelon. In addition to his love of gardening much of the summer was spent camping and fishing.
Many winters were spent enjoying Thailand. Bobby loved everything Thai! The food, the temples, the ancient ruins, the history and the culture. But most of all Bobby loved the people, hence, many friendships were made.
Bobby is now reunited with his brother Denis, daughter Cheryl and his loving parents Gordon and Rose.
Survived by his wife Debbie and son Tony (Pairin).
Brothers Ron (Lena), Don (Donna), Jamie (Anne) and sisters Debbie (Darwyn) and Patti (Brian)
Grandchildren Rose, Christopher, Scott and Ida
Bobby will be interred along side his daughter Cheryl in Kamloops.
A celebration of life will take place at a date to be announced.
Forever in our hearts
Now in the hands of our Heavenly Father
