Obituary for Bob Jefferson

Print
Robert Glen Jefferson
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Robert Glen Jefferson of Arkona on Saturday August 18, 2018 at Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital in his 86th year.

Beloved husband of Margery (Clark) for 63 years. Loving father to David (Sue), Harley (Dee), Kevin (Diane) and Ronald (Terry). Bob was the proud Grandfather of 11 Grandchildren and 12 Great Grandchildren. Bob will be missed by his sister Gwen Wyatt (Late Clare), and brother Ken (Rose) of Regina, Sask. Also lovingly missed by 5 nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents C.R.S. and Freda Jefferson of Regina, Sask., and father and mother-in-law Lloyd and Cora Clark, brother and sister-in-law Richard and Norma Bird all of Forest.

Bob grew up in Saskatchewan and moved to Ontario when he was serving in the military. After serving Bob became the general manager for small agricultural businesses including Lambton Growers Cold Storage and book keeping for Hawken’s Farm Equipment. Later Bob worked as the clerk for the village of Arkona for over 20 years, an everyday smile in his community at work or play, especially when he was winning at cards.

The family would like to sincerely thank Dr. Parr and the nurses and staff of Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital for their care. Donations in Bob's name are appreciated to the Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital Foundation, North Lambton Lodge Auxiliary or the United Church.

Cremation has taken place at Bob's request with internment at the Arkona Cemetery at a later date. Celebrating family and friends, a formal service is not planned at this time.
