Rowlandson, Robert H.

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Robert H.

Beloved husband of Suzanne Pelletier. Father of Robert (Jody), Pete (Cindy) and Jeff (Wendy). Loving grandfather of Haley, Jaden, Breanna, and Donny. Survived by his siblings Laurie (Linda), Daryl (Lynne, Sharen (Keith), Mike (Judy), Marie (Rob), David (Sally) and predeceased by his sister Sheila, brother Donny and stepmother Wilda (née Berndt). Robert worked in retail for over 43 years.  But for 23 of those years, he was the proud owner of the Giant Tiger in Sturgeon Falls and Scott’s discount in Mattawa. When Bob had free time, he enjoyed quadding. As per his wishes there will be no visitation or service. In lieu of flowers donations in Robert’s memory can be made directly to the Heart and Stroke foundation

  3. I went on several ATV trips in Mattawa, with Bob, cleaning the trails.
    He was one of the nicest guys that I could have ever rode with, and when we used to ride with Sue, it was always so comical because he used to tease her and get her all hot and bothered.
    After he left Mattawa, it was not the same at all riding on the trails, as I missed him very much.
    My very sincere condolences to Sue and the Family.
