Obituary for Robert Christopher Simson

In Loving Memory of

Robert Christopher Simson, 64, passed away on Monday, September 26th at Minden Hospital. Bob, as he was known to family and friends, was in comfort and surrounded by loved ones.

Bob is survived by the love of his life, his wife Jane Frigault, with whom he shared 39 wonderful years. Bob has two daughters, Maryann and Shannon (Kevin), whom he also adored.

Born in Marlow, England, Bob emigrated to Canada as a young boy with his parents Dorothy Butler and Fred Simson. He is survived by siblings Stephen, Allan, Rosemary, Joan, Jeremy, and Anne.

From early on, Bob had fascination with engines and mechanics, which led him to frequently disassemble anything with engines or gears… “to see what makes them go”.

Bob continued to work with cars, trucks, and anything with a motor throughout his life. He was ever willing to share his time and knowledge with friends, family, and neighbours.

One of his many achievements, and great source of pride was when he owned and operated his Freightliner truck. A great teller of stories, he enjoyed music, laughter, and the company of family and friends.

Bob also leaves behind three beautiful grandchildren, Rhys, Sydney and Darcy.

Friends and family are invited to a Celebration of Life, on October 15th, 2022, at Gordon A Monk Funeral Home, 127 Bobcaygeon Road, Minden Ontario, between 3 and 5pm.

Memorial Donations can be made to Haliburton Highlands Health Services Foundation (HHHSF).
