He was actively involved with the former Glace Bay Alpines baseball team, was an avid dart player and gardener. He was a great hockey fan and loved the Pittsburgh Penguins. He worked for many years with Devco at the machine shop until his retirement.
He will be sadly missed by his partner, Joan Burton and loving children, Beverly (Richard), Johnnie (Tanya), Billy (Sherry), Robert (Jeanette); grandchildren, Nicolas, Taylor, Evan, Matt, Benny, Aaron, Brydon and Garrett. Besides his parents, Robert was also predeceased by his sister, Linda Strojsa.

A graveside service will take place 1 p.m. on Friday, December 2, at St Mary’s Anglican Cemetery. The family will gather at Vespers By the Sea (17 Eleventh St., New Aberdeen) following the service.
We would like to thank Dr. Mark Ellerker and Cathy for their compassion and caring during Robert’s illness. Also a sincere thank you and heartfelt gratitude to the VON and home care staff. We could not have gotten through without your help.
