Robert (Bob) Earl Parmenter

July 26, 1935 - March 6, 2019


PARMENTER:     Robert Earl

It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of Bob on March 6, 2019 with family by his side. He was born on July 26, 1935.  Bob fought bravely from the age of 17 with polio and the resulting handicaps that come with this disease.  All though Bob never let polio hold him back it was eventually cancer that caught up with him a few short years ago.

Bob is lovingly remembered by his wife Sue; daughters; Debbie Parmenter; Pat Barnes (Guy); Sandy Deliva (Happy);  5 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.  The recent birth of a great granddaughter brought great joy to family particularly Bob when he got to hold her and the beam of light that emanated from him was precious.

Bob started his working career as an insurance adjuster which took him across the country.  Bob and Sue eventually moved to the Island where they purchased & ran Pier 66 Marina in Cowichan Bay, from 1973 to 1996. With the help of Sue and their 3 daughters, he made the business very successful.  Bob was a member of numerous Masonic Lodges and Shrine Clubs consisting of Malahat Lodge in Mill Bay, Tzouhalem Chapter of Royal Arch; Kona Lodge and Shrine Center in Kona Hawaii; Gizeh Shriners of BC and Yukon; Cowichan Valley Shrine Club in Duncan; as well as a member of Scottish Rite.  All of which he dedicated many hours to attend and be part of.

A gathering of friends and family will be held at H.W. Wallace Cremation and Burial Centre, 5285 Polkey Road, Duncan BC on Saturday April 27, 2019 from 2 to 4 pm.

You were my first boss. You were both generous and gracious. I will always remember pumping gas at the Pier 66 gas dock for you and Sue. On behave of the Reid family, I would like to send our condolences to Sue, Debbie, Pat and Sandy.
