In memory of
LAURENS, Robert (Bob) Charles April 19, 1926 – February 11, 2017 Robert Charles Laurens, "Our Bob", was born in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, April 19,1926, and lived most of his life in Calgary, where he died peacefully on Saturday, February 11, 2017 at the age of 90 years. Although Bob was in poor health during the past year, he faced it with the humour and good nature that he is remembered for. Bob never stopped learning, loving or contributing to life with an open heart and compassion for people. Throughout his life, he was readily adopted and loved by so many as their most cherished father-figure, their favourite uncle, their dearest friend. Thank you, Bob. Bob was predeceased by, his wife Kathleen Laurens (Kay) who died in 2002, and leaves behind his daughters; Audrey Mabee (Calgary), and Sister Donna-Mae of the Monastery of Bethlehem (Quebec); and his grandson, Rob Mabee (Calgary). Bob's family extends a huge thank you to the wonderful management and staff at Garrison Green Assisted Living, particularly to the nursing staff, who cared for Bob daily with love and many kindnesses. A celebration of Bob's life will be held at a future date. Photos, memories and condolences may be shared with Bob's family through www.evanjstrong.com . Arrangements in care of EVAN J.
