In Loving Memory of Robert Frederick Othmar (Bob) Hurrle
Passed away at Hyland Crest Senior Citizens Home on September 14th 2019, in his 89th year.

Predeceased by his beloved wife, Libby (Cutmore) in 2004. Survived by sons Grant (Eduardo) of Vancouver, and Greg (Julie) of Moore Falls. Also survived and remembered as Grampa by Drake, Nolan, Anders and Molly. Dear companion of Ruth Spink for much of his last 15 years.

Born and raised in Peterborough, Bob graduated with an engineering degree from Queen’s University, and worked at GE in his hometown until his retirement in 1991. He and Libby moved to Mountain Lake in the mid 90’s, and Minden became their home.

A selfless and generous man, Bob donated countless hours to minor hockey, Boy Scouts, Rotary Club, Mountain Lake POA, the Terry Fox Run, and building projects of the Otonabee Community Centre in 1978 and the reconstruction of All Saints Church in Peterborough after a devastating fire in 1983.

A sincere thank you to all the staff of Hyland Crest for their warm and caring support over the past three years.

Friends are invited to visit the family at the Gordon A. Monk Funeral Home, 127 Bobcaygeon Rd., P.O. Box 427, Minden K0M 2K0 on Friday, September 27, 2019 from 11:00 am until the time of the Service to Celebrate Bob’s Life at 1:00 pm. Reception to follow at the Royal Canadian Legion Br. 636, 12847 Hwy. 35, Minden. Cremation has taken place.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to Parkinson Canada or the Haliburton Highlands Health Services Foundations (HHHSF) would be greatly appreciated.

We are sad to hear of Bob's passing. Our family will treasure our Mountain Lake memories of Bob enjoying a good wiener roast, playing many games of crib. Later we visited in the Highland Crest in the summer with our dogs; Finley and Gracie. He always had some hidden dog treats. Bob loved to chat and was always interested in what was happening in our world; asking questions and remembering details about our lives. Bob was a kind soul and true gentleman, who has left his mark on our hearts.

Our hearts were heavy with sadness on the morning of the Minden Terry Fox Run this year as we remembered our beloved Bob. He was our treasurer from 1994 to 2012. Bob loved counting all the thousands of dollars our run site brought in over the years. He loved being the one to call the foundation office and getting the "cheer" from the staff. He always said that cheer was second best, the money was the first. I was in to see him on Father's Day and he couldn't remember my name but he knew I was the Terry Fox lady and that made me very proud to know that I had that impact on him and that was how he remembered me. Rest in Peace Bob. Forever in our hearts.

I’ve been blessed in my live to have many positive male role models. My father, grandfather, uncles and cousins. But apart from family members I would say that Bob was one of the most important men in my life.
It had never occurred to me that I was a good hockey player until Bob as my coach told me so. He’d come down the bench and tell me “we can win this game if you decide to” or yell out to me at a face off and make a fist and say come on! The confidence he gave me as a young man was powerful.
Later he had another influential role as father of my best friend. He say things like “you know the difference between right and wrong so it’s choices that matter”. Perhaps most importantly he told me about his experiences going back to school as a mature student and all the benefits. How much more focused you were how much better you could be. Years later this had a profound influence on my decision to go back to school at age 27 and ultimately on the career I ended up having.
Now all these years later, with Bob gone, I wonder in he knew the effect he had on my life. I wonder if he knew how grateful I was to him. I regret not telling him before now but thank you Bob for everything.
