It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Robert (Bob) Cuming on February 28th at Clearwater, B.C.
Bob’s zest for life began when he was born in North Vancouver, B.C. on July 8th, 1952. Growing up surrounded by the forest as his playground, he continued his love of the outdoors throughout his life. After attending school in North Vancouver and Shawnigan Lake he explored many different job opportunities finally settling on a career as an art educator in Clearwater. The 30 years he spent in the classroom where very memorable for both himself and his students. Bob taught life skills to his students using his classes as a medium. His enthusiasm, out going personality, and infectious smile will be missed not only by his friends and family but all the members of the community that he loved so much.
Bob was predeceased by his Mother Irene in 2012. Bob leaves behind his wife Carol, his son Dylan, father Russell in Surrey, and sister Barbara (Jim) Cannici in Oregon. Missing Bob will be numerous members of his family and many, many friends.
A celebration of Bob’s life will be held on Saturday, March 9th, 2013 at the Royal Canadian Legion, 257 Glen Rd. Clearwater, B.C. at 11:00 a.m., reception to follow. Condolences may be sent, and the service viewed on-line at www.North ThompsonFuneral.com. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the BCSPCA in Bob’s memory. Arrangements entrusted to North Thompson Funeral Services, Clearwater, BC, 250-674-3030.
