Obituary for Robert Ruggles Irwin
In his 84th year our Dad, Poppa, Bob, surrounded by his loved ones, left us quickly and peacefully. Joining his son Stephen Ruggles (Ern) and brother's Bill, Bruce and Barry in Heaven. Survived by his very much loyal and loved wife of 63 years Gladys Doreen (Huffman) or Gravel as he affectionately called mom, his son Scott, daughters Christine Veniotte and Julie Peskett (Dave), 7 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren and his little sister Winnie Chartrand (Richard) and dog daughter Echo. It would be an understatement to say that Bob had the gift of gab and could talk anyone under the table as he quite often did as the Skate Sharpener at the Almonte Arena and playing Clayton Lob Ball. We share many great memories with Poppa at his favourite place their home/cottage on Clayton Lake. Where a Celebration of Life will be held in Irwin Park on Clayton Lake at a later date.
"Be careful on that Lake Road."
And "Be good to each other"
Love you Dad xo
Thanks for spoiling all of us rotten
And we will take good care of Mom for you.
