SALIBA – Hassib Wade

January 7, 1935 – October 31, 2009

With Family by his side, it is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Hassib Saliba, on Saturday, October 31, 2009 after a courageous battle with cancer.

In his spare time, and throughout retirement, he enjoyed spending time with his family, barbequing, babysitting his grandchildren, spending time in his garage and hunting. He will be missed by many and will always be remembered for his big moustache and even bigger heart.

    I worked with “Bob” at CP for many years we had a bunch of good times and many laughs. He was always ready to joke around, he was for the most part a really happy guy. The shop was better when he was there. When he retired he took a peice of all of us with him. He is the only guy I know that took on a train at a level crossing and was around to talk about it. I think it happened twice. I always enjoyed working with him. I also enjoyed bugging him about anything and everything. To his family I offer my deepest sympathy, you were blessed to have him in your life, I was lucky enough to work with him . “Bob” you are free now .
