AMES; BOB. Robert Edward Ames of Chilliwack, BC. Born December 5th, 1938. Our beloved father, grandfather, husband, brother, friend, cousin and uncle died suddenly at the age of 74 on this first day of Fall September 23, 2013. Bob was a long time community volunteer with Chilliwack Minor Hockey, the YM/YWCA and a local business man for 40 years. It was at his store, Cheam Sports, where he spent many years sharing his love of sports with his community. Bob was a devoted family man, often seen in rinks around the Lower Mainland watching his grandchildren play hockey. He loved to fish, golf, ski, make wine and he was a passionate gardener with a love for roses. He will forever and always be lovingly remembered by his wife Beverly of 51 years, his daughters Denese (Andy Anderson), Janice (Richard Simon), Roxanne (Tom Raack), and son Geoff (Rhiana). His kind spirit and wise advice will be greatly missed by his grandchildren Forrest, Joshua, Jessica, Travis, Hayden, Robert, James and TJ.
“If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.”
Memorial Donations in memory of Bob may be made to the Arthritis Society.
