Robert Clement Godfrey

March 28, 1938 - December 8, 2022


Long time Lake Cowichan resident Bob Godfrey passed away peacefully at home on December 8, 2022. He was predeceased by his parents Ralph and Lil Godfrey and is survived by his daughter Terri Wood and her two children, Trisha and Myles, and his son Reid Godfrey, and his son Sterling. Also survived by his daughter in law, Sherry Godfrey.

Bob was raised in Lake Cowichan and graduated from LCHS in 1956. He went on to become a heavy duty mechanic and welder and was employed in the forest industry until he started his own business, Bob Godfrey Welding, in the 1970’s which became a big success. Eventually he went on to do inspections for the provincial government. Like the energizer bunny, he never quit working.

The family would like to express our gratitude to Ed and Audrey James and Rod and Karen Peters for always being there for Bob. There are numerous others deserving of our thanks, you know who you are, and we are very grateful.

A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please donate to a charity of your choice.

Relation: friend

It is with great sadness that I have heard the news of Bob’s passing.He was a Long time friend of my dad’s, Archie White, which they enjoyed one another’s company. When passed in 2013, Bob also would check in on my mom from time to time. I was happy to see the picture of Bob in his Stanfield as that is how I will remember him when he would greet me with a smile. My Condolences to the family !!

From: Diana Brebeck
Relation: Old Neighbor

We were very sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. So many memories of playing in the pasture with Frisky and Bob never complained about all us kids on his property. I guess all the produce he got from mom and dad was fair trade. We all send our condolences.

From: Susan Cawley
Relation: He was my deceased husbands cousin

My condolences to Bob’ family and friends.

From: Eric and Agneta Lundberg

Knew Bob through hockey and his role in education years ago. He was always very friendly and interesting to talk to about Lake Cowichan history.
