Obituary
May 16, 1961 – October 7, 2023
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Robert David McColl in his 63rd year, after a valiant battle with cancer. Rob will be missed by his family and friends. Beloved son of Mary Ellen McColl, much loved brother of Laura Hobson, Beth Bonvie (Andy), Barbara Andersen (Eric), and truly adored uncle of Jacob Bonvie, Alanah Bonvie (Austin), Brendan Hobson (Samantha), Drew Hobson, Brianna Gosselin, Jackson Gosselin, and great nephew Logan Hobson. Pre-deceased by his dearly cherished father David McColl. Rob will be missed by many aunts, uncles and cousins, as well as his dear friend Constance and his very special grade 8 teacher at the time of his accident, Mrs. Rogers who has remained in contact throughout his life. In Rob’s words, “I don’t want anyone to be sad for me… I want them to know how thankful I was to have lived this life.”
Despite the many challenges and adversity faced throughout his life, Rob was a true survivor and remained unbelievably positive, friendly and outgoing to the end. The focus of his life was ‘the girls’ as he fondly referred to his three sisters and their children, his six nieces and nephews. Rob volunteered his time at The Regional Community Brain Injury Services and The Glaxo Wellcome Clinical Education Centre.
Rob had a dry sense of humour which he shared with all who knew him, including his health care team and total strangers, always bringing a smile to their faces. He enjoyed playing scrabble, cribbage and cards with anyone who would play. He enjoyed being with people and socializing.
The family want to thank the staff at the Bayshore Transitional Care Unit in Amherstview for their care and compassion during his final days, particularly his nurse Brittany.
Cremation has taken place. A private celebration of life will be held at the Deerfield Room, 115 Barrett Court, for family and friends on October 21, 2023. Interment will take place at a later date at the McPhail Cemetery, Codrington, ON where he will rejoin his father and paternal grandparents.
For those wishing to do so, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the UHKF – Community Brain Injury Services – Providence Care Hospital, or the Canadian Cancer Society.
