Robert “Bob” Clinton

August 2, 2018 2 Condolences Print Obituary

It is with love and gratitude for a life well lived that the family of Robert “Bob” Clinton announces his passing on August 27 at the age of 80.

He is predeceased by his wife of 52 years, Helen Clinton in 2010 and eldest son Robert Jr. (Bobby) in 1983. Bob will live on in the hearts of his surviving children Chris & Greg Clinton, daughters-in-law Helen Clinton & Sally Dubois, his grandchildren Chantelle Baudette, Darius & Taylor Clinton, and great-grandchild Breanna Mae Baudette. Bob had a large extended family of brothers: George, John, Phillip William and Thomas, sisters Norma, Eleanor and Ann, nieces and nephews: Linda, Stephen, William, Claire, Roberta, Elizabeth, Bonita, and John.

He also leaves behind so many friends that it is hard to mention each one individually, from the International Brotherhood of Operating Engineers-Local 955, to the Take Five coffee spot in Beverly, to the Fiddler’s Roost dance party.

At Bob’s request cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday, August 8, 2018 at Fiddler’s Roost, 7308 - 76 Avenue, from 4-6pm.

Bob was one tough cookie. He took chances in life, he travelled the world, and was known and loved by many. We are going to miss you. BUT, if you have taught us anything: you can't be sad, you got to get up, stand up for yourself, work hard and be kind. No matter what life throws at you, embrace the beautiful elements, even if you can't control the outcome.

The Family would like to extend their appreciation and gratitude to the staff of the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute. Donations in Robert’s name may be made to STARS Air Ambulance.

  1. Bob was a very special neighbour and friend. In addition to giving me rides to medical appointments, he was the keeper of my house when I was away. bringing in the mail and taking care of my cats… I appreciated his kindness and his sense of humor and take on things as no one could tell a story any better than Bob. He had lots of advice to give me and I will miss him a lot as I did his wife Helen before him. I wish you were still here Bob but sadly it was not to be. I will always remember you and have faith that you and Helen have joined hands again, God bless and rest in peace.

  2. My deepest sympathy to each and every one of you.
    Bob was a friend and dance partner from Fiddlers Roost and the Kingsway Legion, we had many laughs and dances. He will be greatly missed by many.
    R.I.P my friend
