We Remember

Mahood Robert

MAHOOD, Robert Bruce (Bob)

August 24, 1926 — October 26, 2017

It is with great sadness that we announce that Bob Mahood passed away peacefully at Glenmore Lodge on October 26, 2017. Bob is survived by his loving wife Florence (Flo), son Bruce and grandson Mathew. Bob was predeceased by his son Ian and brother Alex.

Bob was born in Athabasca, Alberta and attended school in Anyox, BC and North Vancouver. At age 17, Bob joined the Royal Canadian Navy, serving in the Second World War. On his return, he began working for the National Cash Register Company in Victoria. In 1955, he was transferred to Kelowna where he met Flo. They were married the following year in Dayton Ohio, where Bob was attending Technical School. His 39-year career with NCR as Manager of Technical services took the family to Saskatoon, Sudbury, Vancouver and back to Kelowna.

Bob loved playing golf as a member of the Kelowna Golf and Country Club for over 30 years. He was an avid reader and member of Toastmasters. He enjoyed the outdoors – hiking, fishing, hunting, trap shooting and cross-country skiing. He loved travelling, especially with the RV after retirement.

We are grateful to the staffs of Brookhaven Care Centre and Glenmore Lodge who provided loving care to Bob this past year.

Bob was a devoted husband, father and friend who will be dearly missed.

A service to honor Bob’s life will be held at the Cathedral Church of St. Michael and All Angels on Saturday, November 4th at 1:30 pm, 608 Sutherland Ave, Kelowna, BC. Reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, a donation to St. Michael’s Cathedral Memorial Fund or the charity of your choice would be appreciated.

Condolences

  • Dear Flo and family,
    I was sad to hear that Bob recently passed away. He was the branch manager that hired me at NCR here in Kelowna where I am still working as the senior CE after 34.5 years. I remember him as tough but always fair. He was an example of commitment, integrity, and a great mentor in my early years. He was always generous and caring and I remember many great times at Christmas parties at your home on Mountain Ave. I pray God’s richest blessing on you as you go through this difficult time.
