Bob Alexander

June 17, 1942 - August 29, 2015


On Saturday August 29, 2015, Mr. Robert “Bob” Alexander passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at his home in Oliver after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 73 years.

He was predeceased by his father Leslie and his mother Ivy.

Bob will be fondly remembered by his loving family including wife Beverley; son Chad (Krista) and their children Daniel, Parker and Ryleigh, son David and daughter Dawn (Justin) and their son Benjamin.

Bob enjoyed a long career starting out with Revelstoke Building Supply which was sold to Home Hardware (located in Fort St. John, BC) where he was a manager and part owner for thirty eight years. He was awarded a lifetime achievement award from the Fort St. John Chamber of Commerce.

He loved to travel and enjoyed trips to Disneyland, Mexico, Japan, many more tropical locations and was a “snowbird” in Yuma, AZ for eleven years.

Bob was also very involved in his community. He was a member of the Fort St. John Rotary Club and their student exchange program, North Peace Savings and Credit Union board of directors, was on the strata council and was the garden builder at Casa Rio.

In his spare time, Bob enjoyed walking and hiking, bike riding, fishing, building/creating gardens, reading, sitting in the sun, camping and travelling.

A celebration of life will be held at 2:00 P.M. Saturday September 5, 2015 at Valley Congregational Church.

Donations are gratefully accepted for the Canadian Cancer Society.
