Joseph Robert GREEN

(Sept. 2, 1928 – Feb. 21, 2011)

Joseph Robert (Bob) Green passed away on February 21 after a valiant fight against cancer.

He will be deeply missed by his wife of 55 years, Ayleen; daughter Judy Simmill (Jim), son Lyle Green (Heather) and grandchildren Mindy (Matt), Melissa, Lindsey and Jordan, brother Donnie (Ilene), and sister Barbara (Ken). Bob was predeceased by his brothers James, Douglas, and sister Marilyn.

Bob transferred to Chilliwack in 1972 from Bancroft, Ontario while working for Canada Packers.

He had a deep appreciation and respect for all living things. His “girls” (chickens, geese and ducks) were a large part of his life. It was a joy to watch his face light up when there were animals or babies around.

Bob will be lovingly missed and always remembered for his devotion to his family, quiet strength, sense of humour, and that sideways glance that meant he was up to something. He taught us all how to respect and love with few words.

A Memorial Service will be held at Henderson’s Funeral Home, 45901 Victoria Avenue, Chilliwack on Friday, March 11 at 11:00 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Bob’s memory to the BC Cancer Society or Diabetes Association.

We’ll miss you, Pops!
