Robert David Ewert
August 9, 1934 ~ May 3, 2017
Robert (Bob) Ewert, of Abbotsford, BC, passed into the presence of his Lord and Saviour on May 3, 2017 at Menno Hospital, surrounded by his family. He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Elsie; sons Douglas (Kathy) of Abbotsford, Rodney (Rita) of Abbotsford, Kevin (Karen) of Edmonton, AB, and Gerald (Jenny) of Mission, BC. His seven grandchildren brought him great joy, and his first great-grandson was born just days before his passing. Robert is predeceased by his sisters Dorothy Heidebrecht and Frieda Rempel, brother Frank Ewert, and parents Peter and Aganetha (Nettie) Ewert. Dad had a life-long love of cars and trucks, spent many years as a long-haul truck driver, and then as a heavy-duty truck mechanic. Favourite times were spent fishing and camping with Elsie and the boys. A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, May 11 at 1:00 p.m. at Level Ground Mennonite Church in Abbotsford. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Parkinson’s Society of BC.
