Robie Earl Vatcher

Born In: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Passed in: Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed on: February 10th, 2011

Robie Earl Vatcher, 63, passed away in Digby General Hospital on Feb. 10, 2011. Although he had not been feeling well for the past few weeks, his death came as a shock to his family and friends. Robie was born in Halifax, and moved to Digby in 1986 with his wife, the former Debbie Wambolt, and continued his career in plumbing and heating. Robie is survived by his wife, Debbie; sons, Eric of Yarmouth; Kyle, who lives at home; and daughter, Tara of Victoria, B.C. Left to mourn beside his wife and three children are his sisters, Judy Neilson (husband Dobbie) of Fall River; and Diane Yarrow (husband Rick) of Wilkie, Sask.; along with many relatives and friends. Robie was predeceased by his father, Eric Vatcher and mother, Winnie. In loving memory of my dearest husband, a service was held in the Fish & Game, Digby County, on Feb. 21. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

God saw he was getting tired
And a cure was not to be,
So he put His arms around him
And whispered ‘Come with me.’
With tearful eyes we watched him suffer,
And saw him fade away
Although we loved him dearly,
We could not make him stay
A golden heart stopped beating.
Hard working hands put to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
