Robert “Bob” Peake

Bob passed away peacefully the afternoon of Thursday, August 23, 2012 at St. Paul’s Hospital Palliative Care Unit at the age of 83. Bob had lived independently at St. Volodymyr Terrace right up to 2 days before his passing, which is how he would have wanted it. He leaves to mourn his three daughters, Kathy (Richard) Robin of Leask, SK, Laura (Alvin) Boyer of Grand Forks, BC, and Janice (Darryl) Reynolds of Nokomis, SK; six grandchildren, Nadine, Derek, Nathan, Megan, Sydney, and Amber; 4 great grandchildren; and his sister, Dorothy Peake of Saskatoon. Bob was predeceased by his wife, Frieda and eight of his brothers and sisters. Bob was born at the family home in Evergreen School District, Leask, SK, the ninth of ten children. Having only ever wanted to be a farmer, he made his home and life on the Peake homestead yard after marrying his wife Frieda in 1957. He was very proud of the fact that he was a successful farmer. Bob enjoyed being a Lions Club member for 22 years, where he was able to help spearhead projects for the Leask community, and he attended many Lions conventions, meeting and making friends from all walks of life. He also served on the School and Wheat Boards. Bob and Frieda loved to travel, visiting relatives in Europe five times, touring Australia with friends, and spending winters in Arizona and California. Bob was challenged by numerous health problems throughout his life, but faced them without fuss to live a normal life and raise three daughters. He was very happy to be able to see his grandchildren and great grandchildren grow and thrive. Bob retired to Leask in 1981 and moved to Saskatoon after Frieda passed in 1994. He found a home at St. Volodymyr Villa and Terrace where he enjoyed playing cards in the evening and riding his scooter to Market Mall for coffee row with the men. The family would like to thank the staff and residents of St. Volodymyr for the caring friendship and love that Bob received there over the years and especially in the past weeks, and are grateful to the S.H.R. Palliative Care Services for their support. The funeral service will be held on Wednesday, August 29, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. at the Leask Lions Hall, Leask, SK. Arrangements in care of David Polzen - MOURNING GLORY FUNERAL SERVICES, Saskatoon. (978-5200) www.mourningglory.ca
