The death of Robert Ralph "Bob" Streatch, 72, occurred at the Sackville Memorial Hospital on Friday, October 19, 2012. Bob was a son of the late Dewey and Alma (Tancook) Streatch.
He loved his family and being in nature. When he wasn't cooking up a feast from his garden or helping his beloved family, Bob would be biking or hiking in the forests and marshlands surrounding his home. Often times he could be found just sitting in the shade of a tree reading a good novel. He lead a simple, caring and selfless life.
Bob will be sadly missed by a daughter, Christine Streatch, Sackville; two sons, Robert "Robin" of Sackville and Darren (Marion) of Charlottetown; three grandchildren, Aurora, Kyle (Lacey), and Nick; five great grandchildren, Phoenix, Camden, Gage, Gavin and Jagger; one sister, Sally (George) Williams and many nieces and nephews.
