We Remember

DENTON, Robert “Bob”

On November 6, 2021, Bob Denton passed away peacefully at the age of 93 years.

Born in Liverpool, England, Bob came to Canada with his wife, Lilian, and his young son, Robert. The family settled in Calgary, AB, and Bob worked as a Diesel Mechanic. He and Lilian retired to Kelowna, BC in 1988.

Bob loved camping, motorcycles, model airplanes, and shandies! A natural handyman, Bob did his own repairs.

His legacy lives on through his children: Carolynn Lake (John), Keith Denton (Jean), John Denton (Jeannie), and daughter-in-law Vi Denton; his grandchildren Carrie, Amber, Trevor, Travis, Les, Amy, Kelly and Ashley; great-grandchildren McKenzie, Zachary, Jake, Bradon, Reese, Cole, Marley, Axel, Makenna, Taylor and Grace. He also leaves behind his sister Joan in England. Sadly, he was predeceased by his loving wife, Lilian, in 2001, and his son Robert in 2005.

Special thanks to all the nurses & aides at Village at Smith Creek, to Chaplin Daryl Busby, and to good friend and neighbours Harvey & Kay.

    I have lots of fond memories of this amazing man and enormous respect. Condolences to all of you. May he rest in peace.

  • Jacki Denton says:

    To my wonderful Canadian family, wish I could be there to hug you all. I have wonderful memories of uncle Bob, especially the one where he kept telling me to keep stepping back on the edge of the mountain in the snow. I loved him to pieces. He will be with his twin, my dad, now and his older brother and sister and his mum and dad and Auntie Lil and Robert. May he rest in piece. 💞💞💞💞
