Lowe, Robert Eugene

It is with great sadness that the family of Robert Eugene Lowe announces his passing after a battle with lung cancer on Monday, April 24th, 2017 at Espanola Regional Hospital at the age of 70 surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Trenton, ON October 29th, 1946 to predeceased Myrtle (McMurter) and Eugene Lowe. He is survived and sadly missed by his loving wife of 48 years, Vicki (Milner). He is predeceased by brother Harry and sister Kay (Lawrence) and loving Aunt Dora (McMurter). Left to mourn are brother John of Hamilton, sister Nancy Clement (Phil) of Trenton and mother-in-law Joyce “Slim” Milner. He was cherished by his three children Christopher (Tracy) of Whitecourt, AB, Daniel (Marsha) of Lively and Sandra Vocaturo (Joe) of Garson. He will be remembered for his strong work ethic and dedication to his family which he has instilled in them. Sadly missed by his six grandchildren Stephen, Jasmine, Matteo, Hailey, Ethan and Julia. They will remember him as Papa with his great sense of humor, love of animals and the outdoors. Missed and never forgotten by many nieces, nephews and extended family.
Bob retired from Canadian General Electric in Trenton in 1994 after 28 years of service, then went on to his dream and became owner and operator of Black Bear Camp, a fishing and hunting camp for 14 years. He spent his retirement enjoying the outdoors, cutting grass at the Espanola Golf Course, spoiling his fur babies Angel and Kitkat, being the grandchildren’s biggest fan and relaxing with his soul mate Vicki.
A special thank you goes out to the Espanola Hospital, Health Sciences North, Northeastern Cancer Centre, Dr. Paul Gibb and Jeannette of Bayshore for their heartfelt attention.
As per Robert’s wishes there will be no visitation or service. A Celebration of Life will be held in Trenton on Saturday, June 10th, 2017 from 1 – 4 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 57 Stella Crescent, Trenton, ON. In lieu of flowers and considering Bob’s love of children, donations to Neo Kids Foundations, Adam's Hope or the Sudbury Alzheimer Society in Sudbury, ON would be appreciated by the family.

  2. My deepest condolences to Vicki and family. I did not have the opportunity to get to know Bob as well as I would have liked, however, it certainly did not take long to see what a special man he was. Despite what he was facing, he remained positive yet accepting at the same time and I found that truly remarkable. Losing someone you have loved for 48 years is beyond heart-wrenching. I pray that you are given the strength to cope with such a devastating loss. X0
