Robert “Bob” Ellis

After an amazing life worthy of a novel Bob passed quietly into the beyond on April 22, joining his beloved mother Francis and son Mike. Bob left behind his loving wife Elsie (Bunnie), four children, five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Born in Vancouver, after serving in the Canadian Navy in WWII Robert lived in Victoria, Saanich and Sooke.


Bob left life as he lived it, a fighter. Never afraid of expressing his opinion, Bob was a man who always pitched in to help, and his capacity for work amazed one and all. His example of “getting it done” touched us all, and he will be missed by everyone who knew him. The family would like to say thank you to the staff at Ayre Manor in Sooke for their help, support and effort: true professionals all.

Friends and family are invited to attend a Memorial Service at Sands Memorial Chapel in Colwood (317 Goldstream Avenue) on May 4 at 2PM.
