Robert ‘Bob’ Crouse

Robert 'Bob' Crouse

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and best friend Robert ‘Bob’ Walter Crouse on February 7, 2013 at the age of 63. Bob passed away peacefully at home with his wife Jocelyn and son Ryley by his side. Bob fought his 2 year battle with cancer courageously never once losing his sense of self and pragmatism. Along with Jocelyn and Ryley, he leaves behind his step-son Joe (Marissa), step-daughter Amanda (Rob), brothers Gary, Michael (Pauline), and Donald, sisters Cathy (Mike) Wiseman and Pamela Downey, five step-grandchildren – Ashton, Araya, Ty, Reece, and Gracie, numerous nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins . Bob was predeceased by his son Ryan (1995), his father Walter (1998) and his mother Rose (2009). Bob first came to the Shuswap over 30 years ago to become the voice of news, sports, and weather for CKXR Radio and the Big R network. He loved what he did, the people he met and worked with, and the many opportunities for outdoor recreation that living in the Shuswap afforded. Bob touched many lives during his time here and he will be forever missed by all those who knew him and loved him. There will be no service at Bob’s request. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a children’s charity of one’s choice. Cremation is in the care of Bowers Funeral Service & Crematorium.

“May God grant you always…

A sunbeam to warm you,

A moonbeam to charm you,

A sheltering angel so nothing can harm you.

Laughter to cheer you,

Faithful friends near you,

And whenever you pray,

Heaven to hear you.”
