Robert Kenneth Hawco

September 14, 1944 – March 23, 2018

It is with great sadness that the family of Robert Hawco announce his passing after a long and lengthy battle with Alzheimer's on Friday March 23, 2018 at the age 73 in Grande Prairie, Alberta.

Bobby was an avid fisher, hunter, dart player, golfer, and enjoyed the outdoors. Bobby was employed for over 25 years with Air Liquid. Dad had the biggest laugh and welcomed everyone into his home with open arms, always making you feel part of the family. The little yellow house in Portage was where he loved to spend time with family and friends while playing golf on the hill. Our Dad wasn’t afraid to laugh and laugh loud. He reminded us it's okay to be kind when people aren't looking.

Bobby leaves behind the love of his life of 41 years Michele, children Bobby (Linda); Balls Creek Nova Scotia, Ronnie (Brenda); Barrie, Ontario and Jacenta (Robert); Grande Prairie, Alberta. Bobby's three grandchildren – Paige, Hayden, and Rowan – brought him the greatest joy. We will miss your great smile and that amazing laugh, Dad. Bob also leaves his sister Terri and brothers Louie and Jimmy, as well as many nieces and nephews. Bobby was predeceased by his parents Sandy and Edith, sisters Dawn, Karen, Sandra, Carmie as well as brothers Billy and Jake.

A celebration of his life will be held later in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.
