FLEMING, Robert (Bob) Elery

April 14, 1932 – February 28, 2019

Robert Fleming, beloved husband of Lil of High River, AB passed away on Thursday, February 28, 2019 at the age of 86 years.

Bob was a tool & die maker and was very proud to have worked on the Avro Arrow project. He, his wife, Lil, and family lived in Scarborough, ON before a company transfer brought them to Calgary in 1967. He was successful in his career as a Manufacturer’s Rep in various industries until his retirement. Bob and Lil enjoyed the past twenty years of retirement in High River.

Bob was a great sports enthusiast having played hockey, baseball and golf. Over the years, Bob developed a great circle of friends and was admired by many for his quick wit and sense of humor. Bob and Lil enjoyed many years as snowbirds in Phoenix, Rancho Mirage and Mazatlan, as well as travelling extensively in the British Isles, Europe and Asia.

Bob will be lovingly remembered by, Lil, his wife of sixty-three years, son Rob (Sandra) and grandson Wes and his Dad, Randy Beiko. He is also survived by his sister Ann, in-laws, Bill and Barb Cuffe; and several nieces and nephews, all living in Ontario. Bob was predeceased by his daughter Susan in 2016.

A Celebration of Bob’s Life will be held at a later date. Condolences may be forwarded through

    Just saw the notice re: Bob. Our condolences on his passing. Always got a kick out of his humour and the jokes he had so much delight in pulling off. We will likely not be able to attend his service (depending on the date) as we are currently in San Diego. Take care-we are thinking about you.

    Bob was truly a one-of-a-kind man and you were fortunate to be “my bride”.
    Be strong my dear.

    Hi Lil: I just happened to be reading an obituary of a friend of Mark’s and saw Bob’s notice. So sorry for your loss. He was such a great guy and never afraid of letting the entire world know that you are the most beautiful woman in the world. I recall fondly our golf games when he’d show up with cocktails for you and all of your golfing companions. In a tuxedo no less! Mark and I are thinking of you, your family, and all his friends as you go through this difficult time. We both have so many fond memories of times together with you two.
    Loads of love,
    Roslyne and Mark
    Penticton, BC
