April 27, 1928 –November 14, 2010
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Robert Osborne who passed away on Sunday, November 14, 2010 at the age of 82 years.
Bob was born on April 27, 1928 in Calgary, Alberta. Son of William and Catherine Osborne, Bob was born with cerebral palsy which challenged him throughout his eighty two years, but despite this handicap Bob lived an active life, attending Elboya Public School and participating in youth groups at Central United Church. He loved to walk through the neighbourhoods close to his Riverdale home, moving on to a cane and finally wheelchair. When his mother passed in 1979 Bob moved into the Scottish Nursing Home where he resided for twenty years, before moving to Cedars Villa for eleven more years. Bob will be remembered most for his cheerful disposition and positive attitude.
Bob will be remembered at a service at Extendicare Cedars Villa (3330- 8th Ave SW) on Tuesday, November 23, 2010 at 1:00 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. Many thanks to the staff at both the Scottish Nursing home and Cedars Villa, and in particular to Randy Trafford his long-time caregiver.
