Robert Benjamin Landry
It is with profound sadness that we share of Robert Benjamin
Landry’s passing. On Tuesday August 27th at the Saint John Regional
Hospital Rob passed away surrounded by his loving family. He is
survived by his wife of 24 years, Stephanie Cooke-Landry and their two
beautiful daughters- Annika (20) and Sydney (16) Landry along with his
two special puppies, Meeka and Darnley. He is predeceased by his
parents Alfred and Christina Landry. As the youngest of six children,
he was a loving brother to Hanny (Carl) MacLeod, Myra (Chris) Vriends,
Arnold (Pam) Landry, Ronald (Ann) Landry, and Kathy (Doug) LeLacheur.
His Cooke Family loved him as their own, he will be so missed by his
Father-in-law and Mother-in-law, Charlie and Joan Cooke along with
brother-in-law Jeff (Margot) Cooke and Shelly Cooke. Rob was adored by
his nieces, nephews, and his many cousins. A true child at heart
always, he loved to tease and laugh, Rob had that something special
children adored. His family extended to so many close friends and he
was so appreciative of the love and laughter they all shared. Rob was
born ( June 30,1966) and raised in Summerside PEI, was a graduate of
UPEI and Holland College and a very talented radio/TV journalist. Rob
was especially proud of his time with the AHL Ottawa Senators as their
play by play announcer. Working in the insurance industry for over 20
years as a Broker, Adjuster and Broker Manager with The Insurance
Company of PEI, Rob is well known and highly respected by his peers.
Rob was successful in everything he did and his commitment to his work
was always unshakable. Rob’s personality was infectious and he was a
friend to many. He loved to travel with his family, especially to
Daytona Beach and spend summers camping at Twin Shores. Rob loved
being outdoors, whether on the beach or working around the yard.
Anyone who entered his home knew the bark of the dogs and the welcome
that awaited. He will be forever remembered for his humor, kindness,
generosity, and love of his family and friends. The Boston Bruins have
gained a super fan in heaven.
