FALLETTA, Robert -

(February 3, 1950- January 12, 2015)

It is with heavy hearts that we have released our brother Robert, at the age of 64, into the care of God.

Robert was a big brother to Thomas (Angela) and best friend. Loving uncle to James, Jessica, Shawn, Eric, Jeremy and Rachel.

Robert served 40 years with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Regiment.

Robert is predeceased by his parents Nicolas and Eileen Falletta.

There is so much to learn from Robert's calm life. He had the greatest love for his cats Kalvin and Rhoda, who miss him so very much.

As per Robert's wishes, cremation has taken place. Robert's request was that you take a walk through the SPCA and Help if you can by adopting a beautiful friend or by a donation, would be greatly appreciated.
