Bob Davidson

January 26, 1937 - April 20, 2022

Tribute

Bob was a loving, loyal, devoted husband, dad, grandpa, and friend. He was a fiercely intelligent man with a deliciously irreverent sense of humour that kept everyone around him laughing: his wife Michaela, his family, his friends, even the cashiers at the Village Market in Lake Cowichan.

Bob is survived by his wife Michaela, his children Don, Robert, Bonnie, Doug, Cathy, Chris, Miriam and Loren, their spouses, his grandchildren, and his great-grandchildren.

Special thank you to Mike Wright from BC Ambulance Service, the Cowichan Valley Hospice Society, Cowichan Hospice House, Dr. Basili, Dr. Masuda, Loren, Bonnie and Katy Bak for their care and attention during Bob’s final days.

Stoicism means “the endurance of pain or hardship without the display of feelings and without complaint” but that definition only partially applied to Bob. He was a stoic man not given to excessive displays of emotions and he bore his final illness with grace and courage. He demonstrated love by caring for his family and friends – making meals, running the Michaela’s Art and Gift Galleries with his wife, and playing bagpipes for his grandson. He exemplified stoicism in the best sense of the word: he moved through the world with strength – punctuated with an impish, mischievous attitude.

His life lesson to us all was that you can be steady as the sun and still be silly. So, go forth through the world – crack jokes too much, love your family too much because love and laughter are what matter in the end.
