It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Robert George Ford on May 12, 2022. Bob is survived by Edie, his loving wife of 64 years; his son, Robert (Kathy); and daughters Sherry (Dave), Jo-ann (Glenn) and Laurie. He is also survived by his 8 grandchildren; Stephanie, Shannon, Matthew, Clayton, Mitchell, Jason, Bryson and Nicholas; 13 great-grand children; sister, Shirley Cobb; sister-in-law, Donna (Ford) Harding; as well as many other friends and relatives. Bob was predeceased by his parents, Muriel and Colin George Ford; stepmom, Josie Ford; and his brother, Jim Ford.
Bob worked at several careers before purchasing a beach resort in Tofino in 1981. He and Edie enjoyed 30 years there before selling and retiring to Parksville.
There were many vacations along the way to New Zealand where they met long time friends Kaye and Sandy, Australia, Hawaii, many cruises as well as yearly treks to Indio, California.
Bob lived a long full life and will be greatly missed by all.
