Robert Lally

August 2, 1928 - June 8, 2013


After a brief stay in hospital, Bob passed away at the age of 84. Survived by wife Marilyn C., son Robert Michael, Duncan B.C., and four grandchildren.

Born in Victoria, B.C., he spent his early years growing up at Estevan Point Lighthouse before spending much of his life working at sea in the southern B.C. coastal area. In 1960 he married Marilyn Christine MacLeod.  In 1973 the family settled in Duncan, Bob worked a number of years as a shipwright and also as a marine surveyor before retiring. After retirement he kept busy, he stayed true to his interests and made a number of half-hull ship models and wood carvings.

After a long battle with cancer he entered the hospital the latter part pf May and on the morning of June 08, 2013 he passed away peacefully. Very special thanks to Dr. G. Robinson, and all the nurses and staff on 2 West at the Cowichan District Hospital. There was no service by request and his body was cremated. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

He will be in our memories and thoughts forever with all our love. Online condolences at www.hwwallacebc.com

Robert was a great teacher of boatbuilding skills that I have used for decades keeping our sailboat S.V. Abdi seaworthy over the past 37 years. Our thoughts are with Marilyn and son Robert. Fair winds and smooth seas Bob!
