Robert passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 in his 78th year, surrounded by family. Beloved husband of Lois Beckman over their 50 years of marriage. Loving father of Kevin (Melanie), and Lindsay. Adoring Grampa of Lilia, Miles, and Aidan. Brother of Linnea Moffatt. Predeceased by his brother Edward. Son of the late Theodore and Verna Beckman. Robert will be dearly missed by his many nephews, cousins, friends, and family.
Born and raised in Toronto, Robert proudly worked for the Toronto Police Service for 32 years. His retirement gave him the time to travel with Lois and pursue his interests. He loved country music and collecting vinyl records. He was also an avid reader and sports fan. Robert will always be remembered for his courage, tenacity, humour, kindness, and wisdom. He was a good friend to all, and his family and friends are better for having had him in their lives.
