Robert Lucien Demers – January 9,1941 to June 29, 2021

It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our Dad, Husband, Papa, Poppy (great) and friends to many! Bob loved his family – his wife Barbara (predeceased) his son Bobby (Liora), daughter Michele (Dave), Grandchildren Cassandra, Chelsey, Owen, Ethan and his 1st Great Grandchild Camden who he simply adored.

Bob spent his career “fighting fires & saving lives” – as a proud member of the North York Fire Department.

Bob was living high right up until his untimely passing. Bob loved an audience, and his family and friends enjoyed his quick wit and zest for life – he will be missed but never forgotten.

Thank you to Dr. Ambrose Marsh for providing “old school” personal care over many, many years! Enjoy your retirement Dr. – well deserved!!

If so inclined, donations appreciated to the ALS society (Victoria Chapter) or the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

The gift of the gab, a smart, quick wit
A friend to many, with jokes always a hit

Serious about sports, nature and news
Lover of junk food, great at crossword clues

An adrenaline seeker, conscious or not
Proven independent man, tougher than he thought

Big fan of music, who always loved to dance
Player of lottery tickets whenever he had the chance

A widow who thrived, for just a year shy
Along with us, Gramma is proud of everything he tried

Level two chef, sale only, seniors-day shopper
Expert at shredding, deleting & treating his care aids proper

Fireman, husband, father of two
Promoted to great-grandpa, was a wish come true

But to me, you’re my Papa who I share with three more,
You have been everything I needed, my heart is so sore

Together with Gramma, may you both rest with such peace
Comfy in love, sporting only the best fleece

With love,

    Sorry to hear about the passing of my good friend Bob. Gonna miss the once a year birthday calls and the joking around on the phone. Every Saturday we played handball at the Ymca with fish and chips afterwards. Love to Michelle and Family. RIP

    Goodbye my friend. We spoke of how we would want to be remembered and Bob said, “without curse words”. We will remember you Bob, for your never ending sense of humor, your wit and according to you, charm beyond compare.
    The brother I never had, a man I will remember and never with a curse word.
