G. Robert "Bob" ADAMS
ADAMS, G. Robert (Bob) 1938 - 2017 A devoted and caring family man, Bob was committed to ensure the comfort, opportunities, and security of his loved ones. Shortly after retiring, he suffered a severe stroke but over the next eighteen years bore the limitations it brought with courage, humour, optimism and grace. Sadly, he passed away peacefully on January 1, 2017. Bob is survived by his wife, Patricia, and sons, Tom (Anita), Michael (Catharine), John (Deborah Neville) and grandchildren, Kyler, Danielle, Brennan, Madison, Ryleigh, Mackenzie, Aiden and Fergus. Upon graduating from UBC, Bob's career path led him into the field of computer systems, and he was witness to the evolution of information technology from the early days of mainframe computers to the handheld devices so prolific today. On retiring, his position was that of Director of Management Information Systems, Scott Paper. Ltd. Bob's hands-on projects involved the whole family in building the cabin where summers were spent fishing and boating in the waters off Bowen Island. A memorial service will be held on January 28, 2017 at 2:30 p.m. at Mount Seymour United Church, 1200 Parkgate Ave., North Vancouver. The family acknowledges with profound appreciation the reliable services of the emergency response personnel on Bowen Island. We also thank the staff at Evergreen House for their care. Memorial contributions in Bob's name can be made to the North Shore Stroke Recovery Centre ( www.nssrc.org ), whose work assists those living with stroke and their families.
