Robertson; Robert Norman
Bob passed away suddenly at his home in Carnaville, Markdale on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 in his 58th year with his loving partner of Linda Chevrier by his side. Beloved son of Ruth Robertson of Shelburne, John(Deb Currie) Robertson of Markdale and step mother Marne Robertson. Loving father to Michelle Chevrier of Vaughn. Dear brother to John Jr. of Toronto, Frederick(Nancy) of Orangeville, Carrie(Cory Lafonte), James(Dawn) all of Markdale and step sisters Andrea(Dean) Archdekin and Chrissy Currie(Brett Coates) all of Wasaga Beach. He will be remembered as cherished uncle to John, Elizabeth, Jeffrey, Allie, Jassie, Ward, Jackson, Grace, Paige, Skylar, Daniel, Dezeray, Zack and Madison. He will be missed by his many great nieces, great nephews, cousins and friends in the carnival industry.
Bob was born in Newmarket on January 30, 1961. He grew up in Bolton, Niagara and Scarborough. He would spend his summers with his dad at the carnivals and once he was of working age he dove right into the family business. He later got his mechanics license and did all the inspections on the trucks. He quickly learned the trades and was a born entrepreneur; starting up his own business at a very young age. This came easily to Bob, which is probably what made him the best concessioner there ever was; everyone wanted to play his games. He thoroughly enjoyed snowmobiling, working on his dune buggy and Star Wars, especially the music. A real comedian, mostly stand up, he loved to make you laugh. But nothing was better than his own child-like laugh. Bob was a fair person who never took sides. He was very methodical and would often sit and take everything in before speaking. He was tidy and neat and it nearly droving him crazy, but these qualities are what made him such a perfectionist and so good at his job. Selfless in every way. So many will miss their time spent with Bob, but no one as much as the children. He loved to spend every moment he could with his nieces and nephews; reading to them and playing games.
