Births Deaths and Marriages: 21 Jan 2019
OBITUARY - Comrade ROBERT MCLELLAN

ROBERT MCLELLAN

Born In: Buchans, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
Born: September 28th, 1944

Passed in: Millgrove, Ontario, Canada
Passed on: January 12th, 2019

74 of Waterloo, Ontario, had strong roots in St. John’s. Bob passed peacefully surrounded by his family on January 12, 2019. Bob fought a long battle with cancer and will be forever missed by family and friends. Bob was a loving husband, proud father and grandfather, ‘grand pooh-bah’ to those close to him, Military Veteran, patriot, and misguided Canadiens fan.
Comrade Bob was a 14-year Member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 530 Waterloo.
Bob leaves behind his wife Joyce, son Troy and his wife Susie, grandchildren Jesse, Victoria and Cavan, brothers and sisters Mary, Veronica, Denis, Cyril, Ron, Kevin, and a multitude of extended family and friends.
Bob will be laid to rest at the National Military Cemetery in Ottawa in the summer of this year. A Celebration of Life will take place on February 2 at the Delta Hotel in Guelph.
Specific attire is required -
The Rules
Bob was always a rules guy, so here are the rules, according to Bob:
1.  This is a celebration, to remember the life of someone that was loved by so many - try your best to be happy and celebrate his life. 
2.  Caesars will be served.  First one is on Bob. 
3.  Everyone in attendance MUST wear Montreal Canadiens shirts/jerseys.  if you do not have one, a nice red shirt will do.  (Yes, all the Maple Leafs fans too - just for one day).
The Details
There will be light food served, buffet style;  sandwiches, cheeses, fruit and desserts.  Tea, coffee, soft drinks and juices are also provided.  There will be a cash bar. 
Members of the family will say a few words.  Everyone is welcome to speak also - and share a happy memory of Bob. 
We ask that in lieu of flowers, that you make a small donation to the Canadian Cancer Society in Bob's name - this can be done as you wish, and on your own.
There will be ample seating and opportunity to speak with others with a photo montage and light music.
For those coming a long distance, rooms are available at a discounted rate of $138, if booked before January 25.  Just reference the Robert McLellan Celebration of Life when you you call.
