It is with profound sadness and broken hearts that we announce the passing of our much loved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Francis Gabriel ‘Rob’ Jessome, age 82, on Tuesday November 7, 2017.
Born in Florence on March 25, 1935 he was the son of the late Raymond and Ruth Jessome.
Rob was a welder/pipe fitter by trade and a lifetime member of the local union 682; he also worked at Marine Atlantic and as a monitor for Dept. of Fisheries, mostly in Little River.
He enjoyed long drives, walks along the boardwalk, travelling and playing cards with family and friends. Most of all he loved spending time with the joys of his life, his grandchildren, Skylar, Kyle, Hannah and Garret. Rob touched many hearts with his humor and wit and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
