Obituary for Robert James Atkinson

February 5, 1955 – April 14, 2021

Robert (Bob, Beer Bob) passed peacefully at Richmond Hospital after a courageous battle with Cancer. Bob was born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and is survived by his wife of 38 years Debbie, son Burton (Kathryn) Madison and Jaxton, daughter Ashley Charles and Olivia, sister Peggy (Nick) stepsister's Laurie and Jody (Donny), stepbrother Garnet (Colleen), many cousins, one niece Amanda (Mike) and three nephews Shane, Trevor (Linnea) and Barrett.

Bob worked for Canada Post as a Letter Carrier for 29 years. He was passionate about his work and loved the outdoors, could and would talk anyone's ear off regardless of the topic.

Bob was first to lend a hand and made friends everywhere he went. He was always the first to join a campfire invited or not. He was a force of nature.

His family was everything to him. When his kids were younger you would find him at basketball games or dance competitions supporting his kids. When well, he enjoyed playing with his grandchildren.

In his final weeks his grandchildren were a great comfort to him. He enjoyed watching them all interact.

Bob will forever be in our hearts; and will be greatly missed.

At Bob's request there will be no service. There will be a celebration of life post Covid.
