We Remember

BUNDON, Robert G. (Bob)

March 13, 1933 — May 11, 2019

On Saturday, May 11, 2019, in Kelowna, BC, Robert (Bob) Germain Bundon, loving husband and father of six children passed away at the age of 86. Robert was born on March 13, 1933 in Kerrobert, SK to Michael and Mary Bundon. He earned his Chartered Accountant Designation in 1957 and worked for many rewarding years, retiring as Managing Partner from Deloitte and Touche in 1997. On July 9, 1955 he married his beloved wife, Beverly. Together they raised five daughters: Donalda Hansen (Wayne), Dolores Bundon (Dean Dubé), Valerie Bobyn (Michael), Eileen Sadlowski (Mark) and Colleen Wright (Bill).  They lost their youngest daughter Rosemary at the age 4 in 1972.

Bob will be fondly remembered by his sixteen grandchildren and their spouses: Jill, Heather, Angela, Gord, Kimberly, Christine, Patrick, Jacqueline, Jimmy, Michelle, Jack, Alex, Quinn, Eve, Ada and Harrison and six great grandchildren: Beth, Simon, Jonah, William, Sloan and Leo.  He is also survived by his sisters Clara LeBlanc, Anne Aydt and Agatha Bundon and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, brothers Michael and Henry, sister Beatrice McLeod, special niece Joanne McLeod and daughter Rosemary.

Bob always had a cheerful disposition and was a friend to everyone. He loved his career and served the communities of Prince Albert and Saskatoon well through membership on multiple Committees and Boards. He spent many joyful hours with his friends golfing and curling. He also loved farming which he felt blessed to return to as a hobby farmer at BET Farms in Prince Albert.

Most of all he loved his wife Beverly with whom he shared 64 years of marriage, his daughters who were the only ones who never let him be the boss, his sons-in-law who became his sons and his many grandchildren and great grandchildren who loved their “Gump”. He was happiest surrounded by his large and loving family. He faced each day with gratitude and graciousness even in the face of the heavy burden he had to bear with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, a rare neurological disease, in his last few years. He has earned his peace.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Alexis Thomson and all the staff at Village at Mill Creek for their compassionate care during his final years in Kelowna, BC.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 10:00 am on Sunday, May 19, 2019 at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield, Kelowna, BC.

    Dearest Beverly, Donalda, Dolores, Val, Eileen and my bestie Colleen. I am saddened to hear about your dear Bob, who I only knew as MR. Bundon. Your mom and dad were always very kind to me…from a young girl of 10 years old and well into adulthood. I got to see them many times at Raider alumni events with Theran. I know that the last while has been hard on all of you. I am happy that your husband/dad is at peace now. I had a wonderful time with you Colleen in Palm Springs in March when we had a chance to reminisce of our younger days and talked about the struggles your dad was experiencing. I am happy for you all that he is at peace now. Much love girls. See you in August. xxxxxxx Monica Harper
