Bob died peacefully in the early morning on May 12, surrounded by his family and the caring team at Peterborough Regional Health Centre following a long and truly courageous battle with cancer.
Pre-deceased by parents Mountjoy (Monty) and Jean Pearse.
Brother to Vicki Gullick (John), Jim Pearse (Vicky) and Sandy Campbell (Stewart).
"Uncle Bob" was a dear friend to his nieces and nephews Britt Leeking (Steve) and Tobey Gullick-Scott (Andrew), Jessica and Christopher Campbell, Katie Pearse (Lee) and Jillian Pearse-Gent (Terry).
He was never happier than when he was with his great nieces and nephew Garnet, Kira, Abi and Briar.
Bob was a lover of nature, travel, wine, swimming, art, literature, and in his later life, of flying.
His family is so very thankful for the care, dedication and excellence of Dr. Colin Matheson and the palliative team at PRHC, the nurses at Princess Gardens and the marvellous team at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre for the many years of care that they provided to Bob.
In lieu of flowers, the family welcomes donations to Hospice Peterborough.
