With heavy hearts we say good bye to Bob Hockney who passed away suddenly at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville at the age of 78 years.


Beloved husband of Marion.  Loving father of Darrin (Marg), Robin (Rheo) and Brandi (Ed).  Cherished grandpa of Shelby (Bradley), Quinton (Victoria), Mason (Carissa), Taylor (Luke), Casey, Colby and Caden.  Adoring great grandpa to Blake, Hallie, Briley, Adelaide and Joelle.


Bob spent over 50 years dedicated to his community, always there in the time of need.  He was one of the regular members of ‘the breakfast club’ and enjoyed his daily chats with beloved friends.  His family was his true pride and joy, he loved spending time with them he will be missed forever.


Special thanks to the doctors and nurses at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville for all they did for Bob.
