GURR: Robert “Bob” Godfrey of London

Posted by on February 20, 2017

GURR, Robert “Bob” Godfrey – Passed on Saturday, February 18th, 2017 in London, Ontario after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Bob was three days short of his 93rd birthday and had recently celebrated his 70th wedding anniversary with his spouse, lifelong partner, companion, teammate and best friend, Lee (née Bortolotti). Son of the late George Gurr and Alice “Queenie” Gurr (née Bolton) of Windsor, Ontario. Beloved father of Dr. Kevin Gurr and wife Carol of London, Ontario, and Paul and wife Mary of Bracebridge, Ontario. Dearest brother of Kathleen “Kay” Kramer and predeceased by his brother-in-law Basil Kramer of Windsor, Ontario. Brother-in-law to Bruno and Margaret Bortolotti, and lifelong best friends with sister-in-law Norma Masterson and the late Terry. Loving grandfather to Ryan, Robert (Jennifer), Carly (James Burley), Emily (Jesse Eccles) and Stephanie (Grant Beeler). Great-grandfather to Yarrow, Oliver, Eliza and Phoebe. Bob was a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force and bravely served his country for multiple years in the European theatre during World War II. Upon his return to Canada, he began his career in Windsor in the machinery supply and automotive related industries at C.H. Henze. There he was fortunate to meet the future love of his life, Lee. Bob’s professional business aspirations began to take shape when he initiated a fifty-year partnership with Stan Cope. From very humble beginnings, Bob and Stan founded and successfully operated several innovative and leading edge Windsor based businesses including Cope & Gurr Industrial Supply, Cope & Gurr Tool Manufacturing, Pressed Steel Products, and Industrial and Commercial Methods (ICM). Following the building of their own home in Windsor and the raising of their two boys, Bob and Lee moved their family to a century old farmhouse (which they completely renovated), a home that quickly became known simply as “the lake” (located between Harrow and Kingsville). It was there that Bob nurtured his love of the outdoors, tennis, boating, gardening and many other activities that “Camp Director” (CD) Lee organized.  The activities they enjoyed included an active golf and social membership at the Kingsville Golf and Country Club. At their Iler Beach home, the family was blessed with many close friends and family who visited frequently. In the early ‘70s, Bob, along with two partners, formed the Cedar Island Yacht Club (Kingsville) which has supported both sailing, powerboating and many social activities for countless people for over 50 years. During the off season, and through their good friend Robert Schuele, Bob and Lee discovered their 2nd favourite home on Sanibel Island, Florida. It was here that our cold weather weeks were displaced by warm sunny days, daily bike rides, tennis competitions, golf, and wonderful social time at the pool. Bob was a loving husband, forever the honourable gentleman, loyal and uncompromising. His warm smile, ready humour and willing mentorship extended to all areas of his life and relationships. Bob will be sorely missed but never forgotten by all who knew him and whose lives were touched by him in so many ways. All are welcome for visitation on Saturday from 2:00-4:00 and 7:00-9:00 p.m. at WESTVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL, 709 Wonderland Road North, London, where the memorial service will be held on Sunday, February 26th, 2017 at 1:00 p.m., followed by a reception. Memorial donations in Bob’s name may be directed to the London Health Sciences Foundation (www.lhsf.ca). For information and online condolences, please visit www.westviewfuneralchapel.com

Tracy Lynn Tuckey (Holden) age 39, fell asleep in death on February 05, 2017 at home after a brief battle with cancer.
Born in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, PQ, she was the beloved wife of Timothy Shawn Tuckey and affectionately remembered as ESM (evil step-mother) to her children Rhys, Zoe and Maxine, daughter to ever loving parents Pierre and Mary, adoring mother-in-law Patricia, dear sister to Laura, Ryan and Becky, sisters-in-law Patti, Yammi, Kathy and brothers-in-law AJ, Chris, Kevin, and Jeremy. Tracy was also an affectionate, mischievous Aunt to Zack, Alex, Owen, Ava, Sophie, and Alexis.
She enjoyed a close relationship with her extended family Aunts Cathy, Patti, Uncles Norman, Don, and family friends Tom and Cathy Kuchlein.
Tracy had endearing friendships with Leah, Ruth, Debbie and Peter, Claudia, Dianne, Grant and Isabel, Greg and Pat, Meghan, Alisha, Kristin, Leslie, Allison, and of course Paul.
Tracy loved her job at the Thames Valley District School Board where Jane, Erin, Steve, Scott, Darlene, and Vicky fondly remember her.
Tracy’s love of shoes only paled when compared to her love for her husband and complete faith, love, and trust in her creator Jehovah. Tracy’s favourite scripture is a promise by Jehovah God through his Son, Jesus, in the very near future:
With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:3, 4).
The Tuckey Family would like to thank:
Pierre and Mary Holden for the tireless hours they spent in support of their daughter.
The Southdale Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses for all their support they lovingly demonstrated in their time of need.
The Palliative Care Team at LHSC-Victoria Hospital for their compassionate care.
CCAC and the VON for the resources and energies they supplied.
Dr. Elia and Dr. Malik for their dedication and professionalism.
Tracy’s final desire was to be remembered by her family and friends at her memorial service at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses located at 86 Baseline Rd W, London, Ontario on Saturday, February, 11, 2017 at 1:30 PM. A brief talk will be given in memorial for Tracy at 2:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations are requested in Tracy’s memory at www.jw.org
