Robert William Ellerby

November 16, 1944 - March 25, 2016


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dad Rob (Jammer).
Rob was predeceased by his oldest son Steuart in 2012 and is survived by his daughter Allison and granddaughter Kaci of Powell River; and his son Michael (Karen) and grandsons Austin and Bryce of Fernie, BC. He is also survived by three of his five siblings: sisters Anna May (Jack) and Marg (Jake) and his brother John (Vera) and his extended family and friends.

Dad was born and raised in Powell River and never wanted to be anywhere else; he loved it here. He grew up between Okeover, Lund and Townsite, knew how to operate boats from a young age, and loved being on the water, whether lake or the ocean.

Rob worked in the paper machines in the Powell River mill for 38 years before his retirement. He was also a volunteer firefighter for 10 years (1983-1994) with Malaspina Volunteer Fire Department and gained many friendships being involved in the community.

No service by request. There will be a family gathering at a later date.

For the grandkids, as dad would say, ‘okay, bye for now.’

Relation: great family neighbours in more than one place and the guys solved all the problems over coffee every morning their mill shifts allows.

Sorry for your loss = will always remember our total family funs in particular haloween, remember trip to the island. So sorry we lost in the outcome of two of our children. We both loved and still do love them but they chose different. Thankyou for the good memories Jammer. I moved on so hope the last years were happy with your grandbabies and good kiddies.
