Robert RUDE

RUDE Robert Walter. May 27, 1946 ~ Aug. 7, 2011. Bob passed away after a long battle with cancer which he fought to the end, aided in part by his passion for the Canuck’s quest for the Stanley Cup. His wife Sharron and his two sisters were at his side. He leaves behind his father Walter Rude, sisters Sandra (Al) of Nanaimo and Wendy (Doug) of Coquitlam, son Jason (wife) and granddaughter, step-daughter Joy of Manitoba, and a large extended family. Bob was an avid sports fan and enjoyed both playing and coaching baseball as well as organizing ball tournaments. During his younger life he toured Australia and Europe. He worked at a wide variety of jobs throughout his career – most recently with Sealand and Fast Freight. Special thanks to Dr. McPherson and all the palliative home care workers for their invaluable care and also the staff of McKenney Creek Hospice for their support in his final hours. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BC Cancer Foundation in Bob’s memory. A Celebration of Life will be held at Garden Hill Funeral Home, 11765 224 Street, Maple Ridge on Saturday Aug 13th at 2:00.
