Robert Bob Reid

September 2, 1944 - November 9, 2013


It is with much love that we announce that Robert (Bob) Ferguson Reid, 69, passed away peacefully on November 9th, 2013 at Mountain Lakes Senior Community in Nelson British Columbia.

He was born on September 2nd 1944 to William Ferguson and Mary Leonna Reid in Calgary, Alberta Canada. He was the youngest of 5 children.  

Bob married the his girl Cinda, in 1967. They were blessed with two sons Michael and Christopher. He filled his time with great dedication to his family and his extended family of hockey children, that affectionately still call him “Coach.   Calgary and Denver is where he divided his working life, loving both countries and creating lasting friendships.   His forever heart home was in Balfour where he spent all his childhood summers returning in 2006 to spend the final years of his life.

He is survived by his wife Cinda, sons Michael (Kristine) of Monticello, MN, Christopher (grandchildren Morrigan, Tyler and Chloe) of Aurora, CO, and his sister Joan Vanhousen of Calgary Alberta, along with numerous beloved cousins, nieces and nephews who all enriched his life. Bob was preceded in death by his father William, mother Leona, infant brother  William Ivan and sisters, Betty Herringshaw and Sheila Magnusson.

A memorial celebration of life will be held in Balfour the Fall of 2014, as per Bob's written wishes.

We wish to thank the staff at Mountain Lake, and Dr. Trevor Janz.   They nurtured us all through this journey, and we are forever grateful for the love and care they gave.  They all helped us heal through this grief.

Memorial donations may be made  to The Alzheimer Society.
