Obituary

Robert Louis Simpson

Bob was born in Flin Flon, Manitoba along with his twin sister Robby who joined older sisters Diane and Phyllis. The family made a number of moves but usually just a house or two down the block living at different homes on Boam Street. When Bob was a young boy his parents bought a remote cabin on Lake Athapap. Over the years many family memories were made at the cabin fishing, boating, playing cards, playing games, and playing in the outdoors. In high school Bob discovered his great singing voice and was in a number of different bands so Flin Flon teens could get their groove on. This of course continued until one of his last performances at Blueberry Jam in the summer of 2019. We will all remember his version of Mustang Sally! When Bob was 22 years old he married Angela and they headed down to the bright city lights of Winnipeg where he worked at the Woolworth’s store. Not long after, their daughter Tiffany arrived and they made a decision to move back to Flin Flon. Guess where Bob decided to rent an apartment…Boam Street. Their first son, Reid was not far behind and a few years later Ryan appeared on the scene. Bob then began working at Hudson Bay Mining as Smelting and became a Power Engineer. The family had outgrown their Boam Street apartment so a decision was made to build a home on Alder Avenue and he also began his own painting and drywall business. He returned to school to study for his Second class Power engineering ticket but when he completed his studies made the decision to make painting and dry walling his full time job. At about this time he also moved to 56 Tweedsmuir which is where he was residing at the time of his passing at 75 years of age. This was a home the he made with his wife Billie Jo and Frankie. Frankie became his main priority and partner in adventures that included trips to Mexico, Kalamazoo, Winnipeg, along with experiencing Flin Flon’s restaurant and coffee scene. Everybody knew Bob and everybody knew Frankie!

Bob was predeceased by his parents Philip and Isabelle, and his sister’s Phyllis Russell and Diane Hoskins. He is survived by his sister Robby along with children Tiffany Anderson (Barry), Reid (grandson Jack), Ryan (fiancé Phoenix and grandchildren Tyler and Kaeley), and Frankie.

A celebration of Bob’s life will take place at a later date.
