FERGUSON, Robert ‘Moose’ of Port Hope formerly of Toronto
Ferguson, Robert “Moose”
April 9, 1932 – February 4, 2013
Son of George and Elizabeth (both deceased), husband of Rose, father of Bob (deceased) and Andy, brother of Eileen, Shirley (deceased), Ron and Don.
Bob spent his entire career as a trader at the Toronto Stock Exchange, where his deep voice earned him the nickname “Moose” and thereafter family and friends never called him anything else (except for his mother). A charitable man, he donated a good portion of his retirement income to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation. In summer Moose and Rose could often be seen driving around Port Hope and Cobourg in his “pride and joy”, a red mustang convertible. In accordance with his wishes, a celebration of life will be announced in the future.
