Obituary

McCormick, Robert “Bob” George                                                                   

May 5, 1942 ~ January 27, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Robert “Bob” George McCormick from his home in Ashcroft on January 27, 2021. He was 78 years of age.

Bob is survived by his wife Linda, son Cary (Allison), Linda’s Children Melanie (Mike), Doug (Shawna), and a host of adoring grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his brothers Merle, Bill, and Howard, and sisters Joan, Pat, and Verna and their families.

He was predeceased by his son Rob, brothers Ben and Don, and sisters Marie, Linda, and Erin.

Bob was born on May 5, 1942, in Prince George and was raised there. He returned there after his time in the navy where he sailed on the H.M.C.S. Bonaventure and saw the world.

After getting out of the navy, he began his long career as an electrician. He took great pride in his work and became very skilled and knowledgeable. Travel for work took him to many places in the US and Canada. The most challenging and rewarding experience of his career has been his time with Ashcroft Electric which he operated from 2002 until 2020.

Bob loved the outdoors and took his grandchildren on many camping and fishing adventures throughout BC. Most recently he shared with them his own piece of paradise on Moffat Creek.

He will be remembered for his strength and courage, his strong work ethic, his ability to fix anything, from backhoes to broken flip-flops, and his love for his family which was fierce and unwavering.

Celebration of life services will be held for Bob at a later date.

Rest easy beyond the pink sky.
