With great sadness and broken hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Robert Holborn, 79, of Dance Township, Ont., at La Verendrye Hospital in Fort Frances, Ont.

Robert was born in Fort Frances to Robert and Elisabeth Holborn. He was predeceased by both parents and his sister, Margaret.

Robert worked in the bush and construction for most of his life before retirement. He worked driving truck for Ross Anderson.

Robert was a quiet man who listened well and was just a nice, kind person loved by everyone who knew him. He also was an avid animal lover and loved being outdoors.

He was quite good at gardening and loved his birds. Family was everything to Robert and he will be sadly missed by son, Curtis (Edith); beloved grandchildren, Lauren, Morgen, and Logan; and great-grandson, Gabriel.

As per Dad's request, cremation has taken place and a family service will take place at a later date.

If desired, in memoriam donations may be made by cheque to the Canadian Lung Association c/o Northridge Funeral Home, P.O. Box 89, Emo, Ont., P0W 1E0.
